Just for the Joy of it: Be Thankful

It has been an interesting week for me. I have come to realize how truly blessed and lucky I am. My boys are healthy, funny, caring and smart kids. Although there are days that are really difficult; fighting, destroying the house, rough housing, throwing tantrums, etc. Even on our worst days, there is someone else in the world that is having a more difficult time. I know this is true but sometimes I need a reminder. I have been following the story of an amazing little boy named Stellan. He has … [Read more...]

Just for the Joy of It: Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes

Is the song ringing through your head yet? My youngest son, Brennan, is 17 months old. He doesn't say many words yet. Brennan understands what we are saying but chooses to point and grunt instead of using words. Of course, Mason does a fair share of talking for Brennan too! This week, I picked up Brennan and he pointed to my hair and said "hair".  He then continued to point to my eyes, nose, ears mouth and teeth. Brennan named each body part as he pointed to it. Amazing! When he got to naming my … [Read more...]

Just for the Joy of it: Kid Conversation

Good True & Beautiful is starting a new Thursday discussion; Just for the Joy of it. I think this is a great idea to sit down and take a moment to review the JOY in our life!

It is a rare occasion that I have time with just him (he is 3 and usually we have little brother Brennan with us who is 17 months). It was nice to have some one on one time and our conversation brought such joy this morning. Mason: "Why are trees … [Read more...]
