I love reading what people say in their homes and around their families. Some of the truest and funniest things come out of our mouths.
In honor of Mother's Day, I thought of a few things my mom said concerning Reese...
I was recently looking at pics on my computer and came across this big guy. A few weeks after Reese was born, Jason and I went to the zoo with our parents. Just looking at those pictures brings back fresh feelings to what that time was like. Raw. My mom took one look at this gorilla and said, "That's how I feel."
The other day my mom and I were talking about Reese and how sometimes we get so upset we don't know what to do. We were out running errands and drove past a breakfast place. She said, "Makes me want to go drown my sorrows in a donut." Trust me, I've wanted to do much more but this brought a smile to my face.
Sometimes a mom just gets it.
These are a few conversations that have gone on in our home this past week.
Me - "No, Zach, we don't eat wood."
Jason - "Hey babe, since my parents are coming up for the weekend, why don't we have Mother's Day lunch at our house, and you can cook?"
Me - "Ok...you want me to cook on Mother's Day?"
Jason - Oh yeah, I don't think of you as a mother."
Me - "Nice."
Jason (recovering) - "I mean, I think of you as my hot beautiful pregnant wife."
Zach - "I want chapstick!"
Jason - "Please?"
Zach - "Pwease."
Jason - "Zach, you can't have my chapstick because you ruin it. Here, you can have Mommy's chapstick."
Zach - "Reese...in Heaven."
The last one is my favorite. ; )
...so is My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
