we were in saint george, utah for christmas this year. with my side of the fam. we have nine nieces and nephews on my side. yep, nine! ranging in age from 2 months to 7.5 years. i can say without hesitation i love all the kids so much- i look forward each time to getting to know their personalities better (all their personalities are all so distinctive). and there is a certain amount of learning that comes from having little kids around- i know much more so when the kids are yours, but for now i am grateful to learn important lessons with the little ones around.
share, eat your dinner before dessert, get sleep to be in a good mood, say sorry when you have wronged someone, hug and kiss your loved ones, get outside and enjoy the outdoors, say thank you often, when you gotta go you gotta go, play as often as you can, read books,
and i hope
these lessons with me
this next year.
