This morning I woke after a very short night to rise and shine get ready for the day and spend some time with the Lord. While I was having my devotions Philip came down. We were chatting a bit and for some reason Philip asked, "Mom are you 60 like daddy?" I laughed thinking.... Ok, I may feel like I'm 60 today but hopefully I don't look like it! I responded "Honey, Daddy and I are 36." My dear Philip who I think has clogged ears again due to excessive wax says, "Oh your 56?!" So I repeated very slowly and loudly, "NO, THIRTY SIX!"He looked at me sweetly smiled, gave me a squeeze and said, "Oh Firty six" and went back to his eating. I laughed and went back to my bible reading thinking about the fact that I am so blessed to be a mommy, even if I am accused of being 60 years old!

Sorry for the old picture. This was from this past Christmas. I thought it showed Philip's glowing mischievous smile well!!

What cute interaction! I remember one time when Kayla was teasing me but I was busy so I didn't catch on right away and when I corrected her, she repeated herself with more voice intonation and then I got it and loved that moment!
