Sierra is very sensitive. She is my child who can always sense when my mood starts changing from patient and calm to annoyed and irritable. The change almost always occurs at 5:00 when I am still trying to get through spelling and math, make dinner, and battle Grant's tantrums because his tummy is hungry. I really appreciate this in her because she knows when to disappear and let me have my grumpy time alone.
A couple days ago Sierra did her disappearing act at dinner time but came back down and gave me a note.
"Love is helpfule whene moms are around. eiaspeicaily Kristy Bourgeous my mom. we love her verry much we lov her as much as Jesus and Hevnly father too. and so we all love Kristy bourgeous and that is that."
That note has stayed on my fridge, so that at dinner time I can look at it and remember that although being a mom isn't fun all the time, my kids love me. And I love them.
