My kids love to see the temple...so do I.
I (also) love to see my kids loving each other. It's right up at the top of the list - you know, the "best Mommy moments" list. Nothing makes me happier than watching Noah and Alex take care of one another and show love and affection for each other.
I love that Noah taught Alex the primary song he has been "practicing" all week. I love the way Alex adores her big brother and the look on her face as she looks up at him.
This week I've also seen (when they didn't know I was looking)...
Alex sneak over to Noah's bed while he was sleeping because she "just had to see Noah"
Noah bringing Alex her blanky when she cries
Alex ALWAYS willing to share whatever she has with Noah (as long as he asks nicely)
Noah asking Alex for "big bear hugs" and kisses - and getting them
Alex telling Noah that he is "the best big brother ever!"
Noah teaching Alex new tasks or games and hearing him encourage and praise her enthusiastically along the way
Seeing the kids "read" to each other
Don't misinterpret this post - a good portion of the time my kids are butting heads, pushing each others buttons, and fighting like cats and dogs. But as long as these other moments are sprinkled in between...I think they'll be ok. These are the moments that make it all worthwhile - the moments I love to see.
