- every time he sees a cross now - since learning about Easter - he says "look, Mommy, there is the cross where Jesus died."
- we practiced riding his bike in front of our house the other day and he gets real nervous thinking he is going to fall, even though he, of course, has training wheels on. I was trying to encourage him by telling him how to pedal and I said: "See bud, you are doing it...that is great. When you know how to pedal and ride you can go wherever you want....you have the freedom to ride, to go...isn't that cool.?" He said: "Yeah, Mommy, I am going to ride to the beach." I LOVE it, a man after my own heart!
- after doing my usual tasks around the house with my dear boys...Brady looks at me and says: "Mommy you are doing a great job. You are my best Mommy."
- praying before his snack yesterday after school, unprompted, he says: "Thank you Jesus for my day. Thank you for our blessings. Thank you for my snack. Thank you for dying on the cross for me." PRECIOUS!!!
- Tonight at dinner when Brady was playing with his fork I said: "Brady put your fork down please." with a bit of an annoyed voice (this is something that has to be said OFTEN). He said: "Mommy I need it. Stop being grumpy, Mommy" without even skipping a beat or being funny. Chris and I had to hide our faces to not laugh in front of him.
