Scotty gets the husband of the year award, and let me explain why. Last December I was so nervous about having a third child with Scotty being in residency and gone all the time, Isaac being a wild child, and just being able to live through these winters here in Michigan. I knew Scotty would be helpful but I didn't expect him to: Make the dinners almost every night he can get home early Finish the laundry with me when he gets home Put the kids to bed every night he's home Help with with the dishes after dinner every night Do all the grocery shopping And still find time to bake yummy wheat bread every week! I don't know exactly how to put this, but I am pretty sure that I have the best man out there. The Lord knew what he was doing when he let me know that Scotty was someone I should not let go. I am truly grateful for him!
The other day I was on the computer with Cali and she always surprises me with what she can do already on the computer and I said, "Cali, you are so smart." Cali then replied, "You are just saying that Mommy." Where did she come up with that?
I always ask Cali if she will do me a favor, and then ask her to help me with something, usually putting something of hers away. Now, Cali asks me to do her a favor and then says something random that needs to be put away in the house. Who is the mom here?
I love the age of 4 years old, it is my favorite so far! Cali has been asking me questions all the time for quite awhile now, but she has recently started asking me more serious questions, like, where do babies come from. I told her that Heavenly Father brought her to me, and I'm pretty sure I will leave it at that for now.
Cali is four years old now and I'm loving it! She loves to play pretend and her favorite computer game is dress-up. She asks to have a friend over every day and is learning so much in her preschool group. She is growing up right before my eyes! I love her so much, especially when she says, "Mommy, I love you." The other day, she said, "I need some Mommy time." I love when she says that, because then I can stop cleaning the house, take a break, and sit down and play dollhouse with her. We have a blast together and I feel so blessed to have a daughter as precious as my Cali!
Cali had her first friend party! She loves all her friends here in Michigan. The other day she cried just thinking about how she will miss them when we move back to Arizona.
“The greatest battle of life is fought out within the silent chambers of the soul. A victory on the inside of a man’s heart is worth a hundred conquests on the battlefields of life. To be master of yourself is the best guarantee that you will be master of the situation. Know thyself. The crown of character is self-control.” 3
