The Best Part

At the end of the day, Garry and I like to ask the girls what their favorite part of the day was. Sometimes their answers surprise us. We'll spend an exciting day at the park and their favorite part of the day was stopping at Target for a $1.50 popcorn combo. Who knew?

Below I blogged about out trip to the National Arboretum. I have to tell you my favorite part.

It's really hard to get three girls out the door. Really hard. Sometimes the stress makes me just want to stay home but I try to push through. What I've tried to do lately is ask the girls to get their backpacks and pack their own snacks. It's just one step I do not have to worry about.

Before we left I checked Macey's backpack to make sure she had enough food/the right food. But I trusted Emma. So imagine my surprise when we sat down on a bench and Emma starts unloading all of this food! She brought two of everything -- "one for Momma". She packed double snacks to make sure I had something, too.

I was stunned. What four year old thinks to pack food for her Mom!

So sweet. I've been amazed by mine lately too. Lance got donuts the other day and Chiler really wanted the other twisty donut. But he asked me if the twisty donut was dad's favorite and I said yes. Then he said that he'd save that one for dad then. When did they get big??

That is so sweet! Remember these times when she turns into a raving teen-age lunatic and sends you hate mail!
