kids say the darnest things...

I have been lucky enough to get to spend the majority of my life being surrounded by children. As of right now I currently am a nanny of three little ones. I always know that when my day is spent with kids, it's going to be different and even better then before. Some of my favorite things is seeing how excited the oldest gets when the animal wildlife visits his classroom and he gets to touch the snake. I love when the five year old draws pictures of me with an extremely large head, orange colored hair and hands that have three fingers. And of course I always smile when the three year old looks up at me with her hands high in the air and says "Hold you".
Above anything I love the thoughts that come from children's minds. A close friend of mine told me the story of when her son (while trying to get past her) suggested that other then Sunday, she should probably go to the gym everyday.
I also love the story that a close friend told me about the time she was teaching soccer to little kids. After getting a hold of the ball, she heard the shouts from one of the kids behind her "Grab the girl with the big butt!"
My niece, young at the time, came out here with her mom to visit me in Utah. She instantly started up a conversation with my roommates and after my sister told her we were leaving she responded, "You go on ahead, I'm going to stay here and visit with the girls."
How thankful I am for children's innocence and desire to be happy.

Haha! I love that story about Abby. She and I were sitting on the Love Sac bonding and watching Labyrinth. Kids are great! There have been a few Sundays when I've been having difficult days but for those two hours I'm in Primary I forget my concerns and am happy.
