"Laughter Lives" Tuesday

Pin It Laughter LivesThis post is part of "Laughter Lives! Tuesday" on the Riggs Family Blog. Check our their blog to read everyone else's "Laughter Lives!" posts.

Not sure if this is going to be a weekly tradition or what, but in my morning blog-hopping, I came across this and since I have a sweet, funny, story to share, I'm joining in today.

Brendan is learning a lot these days. He knows what love is, but he hasn't figured out that he can love more than one person at a time. Typically, he'll come up to me and say "I love mommy!" and one of the girls will ask if he loves them, and he'll say no. Or, if he's in trouble ... for something like pulling all of his sheets off the bed or all of the pillows off the couch ... Gabbi will usually come to his rescue. He will walk up to me all huffy and tell me "I love Gabbi!" Which, of course, if you can only love one person at a time, means I'm off the love list.

Oh - I have one more funny Brendan story too! He's learning how to pray before we eat. He's had the "AMEN" down for a while, but now he's really wanting to pray. Have you ever listened to a three year old pray? It's hilarious. We have prayed for Blue's Clues, Lightening McQueen, BuzzManIComeInPeace, and blankets. The most frequent thing on his list ... like on his daily list ... is "Dean's House." Not Dean, or his family, or that he would get to play with Dean, but Dean's house. (So Micah, your house is good and prayed up! LOL) Actually I think he's actually praying that he'll get to GO to Dean's house, but it's quite cute. He throws in "Dean's House!" if someone else is praying too. So sweet!!

Anyone else have some "Laughter Lives Tuesday" stories? I want to giggle today!

Loving only one at a time is like only having one friend at a time...it's cute how they can't see the "big picture". In time...
