I've always wanted to own my own bookstore/coffee shop, and this is what I want to call it. I actually hate cherries, except fresh Bing cherries. But honestly, a hot fudge sundae is not complete without a cherry. It's just that extra topping that makes it perfect. And that's what I want out of life...all the extras that God gives to make it "perfect" or at least a little closer to heavenly.

Things I Would Have Missed

  • Helping Braxton get his first science fair project to school
  • Bryce "McDonalds! I wuv that pwace!"
  • Bryce "Call Daddy. Call Daddy NOW!" when he went pee-pee in the potty.
  • Brady's belly laugh when I tickle him
  • Taking and picking up Braxton from school
  • Bryce's hugs and kisses for no reason
  • Bryce "Mommy I wike your senin (singing) while I unknowningly sing along to "Troy 1" (High School Musical) b/c its played 4 times in my house in the last 2 days!
  • Brady following me around the house army crawling
  • Brady saying "Da-Da"
  • Nursing Brady
  • The sword in my shoe
  • Wiping snotty noses and dirty behinds (yes, I'm thankful for that too b/c I KNOW they are being taken care of)
  • Hearing Braxton's friend Sam try to "Get him to Jesus" b/c Brax was being mean to his little brother
  • Hot chocolate, a warm fire, and a movie with my boys

I could go on and on... Thank you God for showing me just how precious this time is to me and to my boys!

Children grow so fast and life is always full of opportunities, but the time we spend with them when they are small is such a beautiful gift only a mother can truly understand. Even if moms have to work, the moments we have with our children together are the best moments of all!! You are a super mother Randi and I bet you have 3 little people in your life that think so too:)
