Mia loves to correct anything I might say incorrectly. It is like having my personal dictionary following me around.

On Saturday, we were watching Superman. These old cartoons that are about 10 minutes long on Netflix. We kept watching Clark Kent's silhouette changing into Superman. Jared said, "I just want to watch him change clothes!"

I laughed and asked if he was a pervert. Mia said, "Puberty. Mom the word is puberty."

Sunday we had our Stake Conference. The kids were coloring while listening to the talks. I was wondering if they were even listening. The speaker said something about Christ having mercy and Ellis looked up and said, "That's what Mia says all the time!"

What I Love

We had a special Valentines Day dinner last night. We ate by candle light and listened to some of our favorite love songs. We even had dessert!

As the kids were finishing their meal and before the dessert, we went around in a circle, saying what we loved about each other. It was such a sweet moment.

My favorite was this:

Ellis, "What I love about me is that I am small and cute!"

The other day I was playing Uno with Mia, Gordon and Ellis. Mia was nearly out of cards and I suspect she saw that Ellis drew a Draw Two card. She said, "Have mercy on me!"
