Good Example

The other day I could not find my cell phone. Glendon was out of town so I couldn't just ask him to call my phone. After like 20 minutes of looking, I sat down and was thinking of where I had it last, did I make a call while I was out, etc. I was really afraid that it had fallen out of my purse when I was at the store. Mauri asked what I was looking for so I told her that I couldn't find my cell phone. She then came over and sat down on the couch with me and started rubbing my back and said, "Don't worry mom it will be ok." Then she said to me, "Mom, we should say a prayer to find your phone." So she said a prayer that we would find my phone. No joke like 2 minutes later I checked for my phone in my car and sure enough my phone was there!!! I am very grateful for my little 4 year old's wonderful example. Thanks Mar!!!

A Real Giant

The other day Glendon, Mauri and I went to Maceys. We got done shopping so then we went to the checkout. There was another person in front of us, so we just started putting our groceries on the counter. Well... our checker was a lady who was very tall ( and also a bit bigger sized). Mauri all the sudden points and yells "Look mom, a Real Giant." I was so nervous that the checker was going to hear her so I tried to distract Mar by pointing out the various items at the checkout line. Mar did not go for that she just kept pointing and saying, "But mom, a real giant" I then tried to explain to her that people don't really like being called a giant. She did not get that. Mauri was just thrilled to actually see a "Real Giant". I don't think the checker heard her, but my deepest apologies if she did. Mauri is so funny it cracks me up what she says. I am so glad to be her mom and get to hear funny things from her all day long.
