An Observation

Yesterday was a day spent relaxing and snuggling with my three year old. It was too cold to do anything outside, and the house seemed to have a chill that we couldn’t shake, so we snuggled.

Feeling reconnected with my little guy, after months of head butting, I felt warmed in my heart.

Later, in the afternoon, he can up to me and proceeded to tell me that my eyes are cracked…

I was pretty sure I knew what he meant, but wanted to make sure.

“Where?” I asked.

“Right there — by your eyes.”

I guess that means I laugh a lot… which I certainly did after that conversation…

Blessings, ~K

ps — A BIG “thank you” to Design Mom!
I am the winner of her Random Giveaway for the week. $150.00 in gift cards for Sears/Kmart!
I NEVER win anything. Seriously. So I’m still giddy from the “Special-ness” of it all!

    150??? What a blessing!! I never enter my name in anything, because I never win. Hmmm…maybe if I entered my name I’d win. LOL.

    So funny what your little boy said!! Kids are hilarious.

    Love the story. Sounds like something one of mine would say. Good that you chalked it up to something positive though. THAT is a great attitude. Here’s to the laughter to come!

    Those are the kinds of “cracks” we welcome on our face! There can never be too much laughter! What a precious conversation. I also have a 3 year old son..and the things that come out of his mouth amaze me!

    Ah yes, 3 is such a mix isn’t it? The battles and the last of babyhood that you want to hold on to so very tightly — even as their asserting their independence.

    I agree with the others, those eye-cracks are the best, most attractive kind of wrinkles to have. :)

    ARGGGH! I made one of my pet-peeve spelling mistakes!

    I meant ‘they’re’ not ‘their’.

    Gah, proof in print that I really should be in bed instead of browsing.

    One of those moments that you enjoy, share and then store in your heart. Remember how fasinated he is with the wrinkled skin on my arms. Congrats on winning the gift card. How exciting.
    I love you loads.
