Sweet Moments





Have I mentioned before that I LOVE LOVE LOVE when my kids are best friends? Lately they have been playing so cute together and watching them is something that will always bring a smile to my face. We went to Wal-mart and they walked around the majority of the time holding hands. When Jayden walked by those skeleton death trap displays where they are motion sensored and cause the unsuspecting children to release a blood curdling scream echoing through out the whole store....yeah, those are the ones (the poor kid is scarred for life). Where was I....oh yes, Kylie was so sweet to comfort him in his time of need. This morning they woke up and instead of watching cartoons they spent hours making Halloween decorations and pirate treasure maps (yes, I did not get out of bed until 10:00 today, I am so naughty). Then they spent 2 1/2 hrs playing mom and dad and turning the guest room into their "house". From the picture, you can assume that my comments in the previous post about Jayden graduating into manhood are void. Kylie has managed to brain wash him to believe that as long as the fingernail polish is clear then it's okay and that it's okay for boys to wear rings since daddy sports a little bling-bling in the form of his wedding ring. Pretty much it just boils down to the fact that Jayden looks up to Kylie and admires everything that she does. They have their cute little secrets, their shared laughter, their moments of make-believe and the knowledge that they are and will always be the best of friends. I love these kids....

But alas, my kids are not perfect and do have their moments. Kylie pushed Jayden down the other day and after many tears and a long time out she went to her room and came out a few minutes later and handed Jayden this note decorated all over with hearts:

"Jayden I lu yo sil Jo luv me ur do yo do lic me?" Translation: "Jayden I love you still. Do you love me or do you don't like me?" I love sweet moments like that.

I love that. At least they're playing "Mom and Dad", so he's still a boy even in their pretend world. :)

I am so jealous of your kids. I wish Courtney had a sibling to be best friends with. Or maybe you could move back to Utah(pretty please!) so she could play with your adorable children everyday.

This gives me hope! For now my boys are just plain Tom and Jerry and the sweet moments are too seldom for me!! Seriously that note is the cutest thing ever, what a sweetheart.

What sweethearts! I love that they are best friends. They are just such sweet kids. Says a lot about their sweet parents. Okay, that sounded kind of cheesey, but you know what I mean.

That is the best note ever! I love it, your kids are too cute. But I also love that little devious smile that Kylie has in the picture of her painting Jayden's nails. She just looks so proud of herself for convincing him like that. What a sneak!

Your kids really do get along so well. I love it when my boys are best friends. Tanner will do anything to be just like Trevor and it is starting to really bug Trevor lately.

Bret, Marisa, Kelsey, & Blake said...

That post was way too cute. Isn't it fun when they like each other? Kelsey has just recently decided that Blake is the coolest thing ever and I agree that no one can tell you how amazing that is as a parent.

That is too cute. You need to keep that note...and others like it. Date them and put them in their special boxes for when they are all grown up.
