Mommy, it's snack time!
Today Gabriel got it in his head that he wanted ice cream with sprinkles on it for snack time. This was around 4:30pm and obviously closer to dinner time than snack time, but he was determined. I suggested that maybe if he was well behaved that we could have ice cream after dinner. Immediately after this exchange I went to check my email. A couple of minutes later Gabriel says to me, "Mommy, I'm all ready for snack time. See, I got out three bowls and three spoons and the ice cream and the sprinkles" in his cutest little boy voice. And it was true. While I was zoned out checking emails he had gotten out all of the things neccesary for he and Eli and myself to have ice cream. He had even gotten a smaller spoon for Eli. I couldn't resist. He had thought this out and was so stinkin cute about it. So, we had ice cream for "snack". I actually love when things like this happen. Don't get me wrong, I would always love for the boys to listen to what I say and follow my instructions (I am a parent after all), but these are the types of moments when I really get to slow down and just enjoy being with my children. These are the special moments we will remember.
