Parent Pay Day
Well...last night I had a parent pay day. As a mom I spend most hours of the day trying to teach my children how to get along, share, serve, help others, be friendly, and basically be good people and citizens. Most of the time I feel like it is a lot of work, and an endless cause...until nights like last night. I was craving pumpkin pie and so I made one. As I was dishing up...Kainoa was misbehaving and was sent to his room. I heard Rory saying..."I'm sorry, but now you are not going to be able to have pie." Akime heard that and said, "Can I share my piece of pie with Kainoa." Oh my gosh!!! These boys really are brothers that love each other and look out for each other. Kainoa came down for the pie. When they were leaving the kitchen to go to bed, under my breath (I guess a little too loudly) I said..."Oh"..."I hate when the sink is full of dishes." Kainoa heard me and said, "Mom I'll do the dishes for you." I really wanted him in bed, and him doing the dishes really meant more work for me...but I couldn't beat the offer. Thank heavens for moments like these. My kids really are great...even when it is the middle of summer and we think we're driving each other nuts. We really are happy and loving family!
