On Sundays during church, Aubrey likes to write me notes on her bulletin. It’s so sweet to watch her express herself in words and she gets so serious concentrating on what she wants to say: she’s hungry, can she have a peppermint, or does she HAVE to take a nap after church.
I don’t know why she was so happy this past Sunday. I had the shakes from trying to get everyone to church on time, trying to keep Emma in her seat and still and I was just praying I wouldn’t have to carry anybody out of the sanctuary before they were dismissed for Children’s Church.
In the middle of me twitching nervously on the pew, and feeling guilty about yelling at every single member of my family as I herded them out the door and to the car, THIS is what Aubrey wrote:
“You make me feel so happy momy that I feel like I am feeld up whith joy!!” (And if she was reading this she would definitely say, “The exclamation points mean you should use your excited voice!!”)
