Things to Remember

As I was laying in bed this morning I was thinking about some of the things that I hope I will always remember about my children. Here are just a few of them.

The way Noah use to rub my eyebrows or eyelashes or Timmy's goatee to go to sleep when he has a baby.

Being so worried when Noah came home from the hospital. Wondering if he was ever going to poop. Boy did we celebrate when it actually happened.

The way you could tell Noah to give someone the look when he as the baby and we thought it was the cutest thing ever.

Noah FINALLY potty training when he was three. After locking him outside on the back porch and telling him to clean it up himself. (we aren't very good parents sometimes)

Breaking a yard stick on Noah trying to give him a spanking for biting. It broke three different times, you would have thought I would have learned after the first time. I remember thinking he would probably be a biter for the rest of his life. I am happy to say he does not have that habit any longer.

Noah having to have his appendix out when he was five. It was so icy outside.

Noah's bicycle wreck when he was six and staying at the hospital till 4 am so they could put a few stitches in and glue his chin shut.

Andrew potty training before the age of two and me having to do nothing. He just decided he wanted to wear big boy underwear.

Andrew getting in bed with me every morning and drinking a warm sippy cup of hot chocolate and him throwing a fit if we didn't have any made. It has to be the homemade kind.

Andrew being so good at entertaining himself. He can go into his room and play with his little men for hours.

Andrew asking me why he couldn't eat his boogers. Me not being able to convince him that they were bad for him. Andrew telling me he had one stuck in his teeth.

Noah being convinced he is the smartest kid in his first grade class.

Andrew knowing his right and left but not being able to spell his name or say the alphabet. Figure that one out.

Andrew being a great colorer at the age of 4.

Noah being very competitive in sports of all kinds. Andrew not showing much interest in sports.

These are just some of the things I want to remember.
