I have all my kids ten and under who LOVE to have love ins with mom. Last night at church you would think I was leaving on a long extended journey for all the hugging and loving that went on in the pew. I hate to 'discipline' them for all the hugs as I look at my thirteen year old and that sort of loving is no longer his thing and I know it will pass. I suppose we have to have a chat about the extent of hugging and squeezing which goes on during sermons etc. Benjamin thinks I am sleeping during the sermon when I close my eyes to listen. I tried to explain that I close my eyes to shut out the distractions. Hmmm.......hard to close your eyes if when you open them for a second there is a cute eight year old face looking up into yours. The same goes on at home with all the short people vying for space on either side of me. Perhaps I should get one of those deli machines with little numbers they can pull out. This is not a huge problem till they begin screaming at each other about who is sitting where.
Time to rip myself away from the cute little people and get something done for the today. Bye kids! Hope you survive without my warm self beside you clicking away on the keyboard.
