Treasuring The Magical Things Your Kids Say

Brooke from Inchmark has shared a really cute idea for remembering all those funny wonderful things that your kids say to you during the day. My 4 year old is in his prime, I think, when it comes to off the wall bizarre remarks. Some of the stuff that comes out of his mouth is hysterical, and others I must admit I am either beet red because he has shared his thoughts in public or thanking my lucky stars we were in the privacy of our home. It is amazing the things kids will come up with, and I definitely want to remember these spontaneous remarks from my kids that gave me pause during a hectic day and warmed my heart or made me laugh out loud. Brooke's idea is simple but so cool...write down the funny stuff your kiddos come up with on a piece of paper and put the notes in a jar. Keep that jar nearby, like on your desk, kitchen counter, bedroom dresser, etc. Whenever you need a laugh or just a pick-me-up on a tough day, reach inside that jar and read one of those treasured sayings. Instant smiles guaranteed!
