Lovin' My Little People Recap #3

Our kiddoes with their Boppa and Grammy (my folks).

#21: Shared one of my yummy treats with the kiddoes even though I really didn't want to. After all, if I expect them to share, I should share too!
#22: Loving my kiddoes means teaching them to work HARD, which is a rare thing in today's world. After schoolwork we are going to work on spring cleaning! I wish someone would invent a floor that mops itself to perfection every single day!
#23: Going to sit each child down on my lap and tell them 10 things I love about them.
#24: Making a treasure hunt for the kids with little clues that Alathia can read in order to find the treasure at the end.
#25: Took my kids to the park to run off some energy and play with friends.
#26: Reading aloud to kiddoes is so important. Time to load up with a fresh bunch of books from the library today!
#27: Took the kids to the local grocery store's 50th celebration for games, balloons, free samples, hot dogs, and prizes. They won a cake in the cake walk!
 #28: Got the kids some little gifts that I know will bless them. For A: paper and a box of envelopes (so she'll stop asking to use my computer paper and envelopes) For Jer: a little bug house for collecting bugs and studying them For Just: A shovel for digging in the dirt.
#29: Packing a picnic for them and going to the park at 11 a.m.  My "Weather Man" hubby assures me this is the day to do it this week.
 #30: If my kiddoes expect to get 3 meals and 2 snacks a day, they have to do their chores. No snack until they clean up their things. Love involves preparing your child for adulthood. (2 Thessalonians 3:10 "If a man will not work, he shall not eat.")
#31: Hug 'em. Kiss 'em. Teach them. Train them. Point them to Truth. Affirm them. Encourage them. Special treats and projects sometimes. Quality AND quantity time. Boundaries and consequences. Being thankful for them.
