I have been encouraged by reading blog posts from other mothers who recognise the importance of our task in bringing up children in a Christian way. "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

The Things they Say!!

Lately my time has been taken up with the demands of the "real" world and updating my blog has not been high on the list of priorities.  Time with my children has, however, and the following quotes are just a small example of the many rewards motherhood brings!

I thought I'd share these two gems:

Miss 5: "Mum, when [my uncle] picked me up from kinder, I was soooo happy to see him. I RAN into his arms! When I'm old, I'm going to have double chin JUST like his." (Her tone implied that she could hardly wait!)

Master 4: (He'd wound down the window and I told him not to hold his arm outside the car.)
"But Mum, I'm just trying to catch the wind. (Short silence) I wish I had more hands, so that I could hold the wind."
Me: "What would you do with the wind if you could hold it?"
Mr.4: "I'd play with it."
Me: "Would you throw it up like a ball?"
Mr.4: "No, I'd PLAY with it!"
Me: "Would you keep it in a jar?"
Mr.4: "Mu-um! (frustrated at my ignorance) I'd play WITH it! It would be my FRIEND, like another child!"
