More memories from our KIDS’ BOOK.
November 6, 1992: “This morning, I was in the kitchen while Rebecca was eating breakfast in the dining room. She called out, ‘Bird in bird feeder eating.’"
December 3, 1992: “A little ago Rebecca informed me that she'd found an icky bug. I said, ‘Don't touch him.’ She said, ‘I want to kiss him.’
“A little later, I was in our bedroom, and Rebecca was in the living room. She came toward our room saying, ‘Mommy, I want to give you bunch of kisses.’ Of course, I said yes."
Hmmm. Now I’m wondering if she’d just kissed that “icky bug.”
September 18, 1993: “This morning I went into the hall and bumped into Caleb. He was holding his pillow in front of Him. I asked why he had his pillow. He started pushing the pillow against me and said, “I'm, I'm, I'm gonna push you!’"
October 18, 1993: “At lunch, we were talking about how much I loved my kids. Rebecca asked if I loved myself. I said I didn't need to, since Jesus loves me. She said, ‘Daddy loves you very lot.’"
November 13, 1993: Rebecca asked, ‘When I grow up, will I still be Rebecca?’"
Later that night: “It was almost bed time, so I told the kids, ‘No taking the pillows off the couch; no emptying the toys out of the baskets, (We used laundry baskets for toy boxes,) and no standing on the table and playing with the toy baskets.’ And Caleb said, ‘And no spankings.’"
February 19, 1994: “This morning, Sarah was jumping on the trampoline and counting like the other kids and I do. She said, ‘One, two, five, six, nine, eight.’"
March 7, 1994: “This afternoon, Sarah was playing with the Legos, and I was sitting by her at the table. She got down to pick up one that dropped and said to me, ‘Don't mess with my stuff.’"
