This little girl....

Amazes me.

We were eating lunch and singing "On Top of Spaghetti" because of course, we were eating...spaghetti. I said, "Maybe we should sing a little louder." Claire replied, "You mean FORTE?" Uhhh yeah. That's what I meant...sure.

Not 5 minutes later, she ran in from outside and yelled, "MOMMA! MOMMA! I just saw a bee getting a flower's pollen!" I had to ask, "Claire, how did you get so smart?" Her reply?

"Well, that's how God made me...and I watched the Bee Movie."

It's things like this that make me so thankful that I am able to stay home with my kids. It's also things like that that cancel out the times when one is screaming at the other because, "SHE'S LOOKING AT ME!!!" Thank you Lord for the balance in my life.
**Update** Claire came in again and said, "MOMMA! That bee is STILL out there pollinating!" Love that kid!!
