Have you had pound cake lately Dear Mommy? Don’t brush them aside when they want to be near you, and be helpful. Treasure those moments. Teach with their questions. Love with every measuring cup-full they spill as they do their greatest work of learning and you do your greatest work of teaching.
God bless you and your little ones today!
