Memories…

…for Mother’s Day…

_______________________________

I’ve been reminiscing this morning…looking through some old blog posts from 1-2 yrs. back. I found a few quotes from my kids that I thought I’d share again. I’m glad I posted these, ’cause they sure do bring back memories…

–My son has really been acting out the last couple of days. (I think Kerry assumes he can get away with more, and he’s mad that Daddy is not here.) Anyway, I’ve had to “crack down” on him. Sunday night, the kids and I had the following dialogue :

“You’re S-O-O-O mean!” exclaimed Kerry.

Apparently, I’m not mean enough!” I maturely quipped back. ;-)

Sarah suddenly exclaimed, “No Mommy, please don’t get any meaner!!” -D

**From my Sarah Beth, over a yr. ago:

–Sarah had gotten upset about something and wanted me to hold her. So, I sat down with her in the old recliner. After a few minutes, I told Sarah I had to get up, because I had a lot of things to do.

Just a few more seconds,pleaded Sarah. Oh, Mommy, sometimes I miss the ‘baby days.” -D

**Some of Kerry’s one-liners from about 2 yrs. ago:

–”Don’t give me a bath, Mommy!” protests Kerry. “I don’t need one. I don’t stink bad, I stink good!”

–”Do you want to wear your rain boots today, Kerry?” I ask. “NO!” he says. “I want to wear my sunny boots!”

–At dinner one night, Kerry says, “I love your hamburgers, Mommy…even the black part!”

–”I’m mad at you, Mommy!” Kerry exclaims. “And you’re getting fired!”

–(One) morning, little Kerry says to me, “Good Morning, My Happiness!”

–Last night, when I was putting Kerry to bed, his words brought tears to my eyes. …And no, surprisingly this time, the tears weren’t from hilarious laughter. You see, Kerry has more than one way of “getting to” Mommy…

Kerry looked up at me so sweetly and said, “You’re the mommy I should have.”
