Your Kids Will Tell You What’s Up



Last night we went to Menchies…because it’s awesome.  And it is around the corner from us.  And I don’t think it is going to be near our new home when we move, so we are getting a couple more trips in before we go.


When we got home it was time to get ready for bed, so we sent the kids upstairs for teeth and PJs and I was putting some water in the kettle for some evening green tea.

As I was getting that set up, my 4 year old ran into the kitchen and handed me a post-it note with this adorable picture on it.

Naturally, I thought it was going to be a picture of her with her imaginary prince, so I asked, “Oh, and who is this?”

With a huge grin and a little dance she said, “It is you!  You are in love with Dad.”

At which point my heart melted into my stomach….holy cow is that the sweetest thing ever. omg.

“I sure do!” I said, as I gave her a big hug and sent her off to brush her teeth.


Kids are very aware of what is really going on in your house.  There isn’t much you can honestly hide from them, even if you try.

Your kids will tell you what’s up.  You might believe you are acting happy, or acting supportive, or acting loving, but if your kids don’t see it, or don’t believe it, then chances are…you really aren’t.  If you think you are fooling the world with something, I guarantee that you aren’t fooling your kids.   They know you a lot better than you think they do.


I’m glad it is so obvious how much I love Ben that my little girl believes it.

That’s pretty good 🙂
