Just something to make you smile. Tonight my daughter was watching a survival show with her husband and 3 little ones. It was based in the North Pole, the survivalist said "if you look closely you can see signs of life", Ian my 5 year old grand son excitedly told Landon his 3 year old brother "did you hear that he said if we look close we can see Santa's wife!". My daughter had to leave the room because she was laughing so hard. Yup, who else would you see if you were in the North Pole right!

Great story RE. Children are so amazing. When my twin daughters were four my wife took them to their Kindergarden pre screening. They were so cute sitting together answering questions. Until the teacher asked "what does your parents do?". I assume she meant for work. But to the twins this was an open ended question. The reply was "my dad yells at us and my mother drops us off". It was a stunning view of how our twins felt about their life. I worked night shift and would yell from the bedroom for them to be quiet so I could sleep. My wife would get them up and drop them off at daycare. We were both working hard and getting ahead had taken priority over the children. The result was less daycare and less sleep. More time with the kids even if I had to drag myself to work. Sometimes we have to listen to our children to get our priorities straight. Slickwilly

Slick isn't it funny how those little ones can whip us into shape without even trying! LOL I am sure the loss of sleep paid off a trillion times. Glad you enjoyed the silliness of my grandchildren, they bring me a more joy then I deserve.

Prov:17:6: Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers. I love nothing better then to sit and listen to the words out of the mouth of my just now 2 years old grandson and 1 year 11 month granddaughter, God is so good.

Bailey - I about wet myself reading your story. I am still laughing and I hope my son doesn't happen to come by and see me sitting all alone and laughing. They will lock me up for sure!
