Me to Max: "You know, Max, I think you are really good at being a leader at school and doing your school work the first time Ms. Sandy asks. What do you think you're good at?"
Max (as his lips are covered with chocolate icing and a milk mustache): "Fishin and goin on dates." :).....What're you good at, mommy?
After some dialogue, I tell Max it is his turn to think of a question for us to answer:
Max (With a huge chocolate grin): What's your fav-o-ite thsing bout me? :)
MELT my heart!! :)
Scene 2: Jack stumbling into my bedroom at 6am with bedhead, half opened eyes, and a scratchy voice:
Jack: Mommy, is today da day Pasta Gawand (Pastor Garland) is gonna be my papa? :)
(Today was grandparents day at school and he has been looking forward to Pastor Garland coming to be his adopted papa!...Thank you, Pastor Garland!)
Scene 3: Chris, the kids, and I at the mall, rushing to the car to head over to Hallandale for small groups. After 15 minutes of standing in the parking lot searching for our car keys to no avail, Chris concluded that he must have thrown the keys in the garbage with the scraps from the chik-fil-a kid's meals the boys just enjoyed. As we returned to the food court to debate which trash can can we used, I realized we were going to be late to small groups. I immediately started texting for back-up.
Me--to my friend and small group member: Hi girl. can u please get things started for me tonight? think i'm goin to be late.
p.s. we lost r keys in a trash can (don't know which one) in the food court at the mall. :). will be there asap.
Friend: Sure. on my way there now. traffic is terrible tho.
p.s. you guys r a bit dysfunctional outside of church, huh? :)
ME (As I watch Chris digging through trash can number 2 with only one glove on): Yes. Yes, we are definitely dysfunctional. :)
p.s. WARNING: dont shake Chris' hand tonight. :)
Note: After digging through 3 trash cans ( in the food court at the mall!....I just gag remembering some of the things he had to dig through!), Chris decided to check the last store we were in...Yep, they were sitting on the counter by the register. :)
