funny story about Haven

Having the kids in two different times in school does have it's benefits.
The main one being that I get to have more individual time with them.
More so with Haven than Gibson.

When Haven is home with me in the afternoon, Elam is taking a nap, so we really get to hang out just us girls.

Our dishwasher has been broken for about a week now, and I was behind on washing all our dishes because I was out of dish soap, but I finally got some and it was time to

Haven was very eager to help me, so we spent, probably an hour washing dishes.
(it took ALOT longer with her "helping" but it was well worth the time)

She was so proud of our effort that she began to predict what Gibson and Daddy would say when they got home later.

She said Andrew would come home and say, "Haley, what happened to all the dishes?!"

Funny thing #1 Andrew doesn't call me Haley, he usually calls me "momma"
So, she changed it to, "Momma, Momma, Momma, what happened to all the dishes?"

Funny (and sad) thing #2 Both Andrew and Gibson would never EVER notice something like a sink full of dishes that had been washed, not to mention all the counters cleaned.

I didn't have the heart to tell her that our efforts were appreciated by us and us alone

I'm glad we have each other.

Soooo sweet! Maybe one day I'll get to have a little girl to be my friend. I guess now I just have to "settle" for trucks and balls!

You mean they don't clean themselves? Ha! Just kidding. We all know Papa helps with the dishes.

Girls have to stick together. Having soon three boys, we're happy there is a Haven to make the mixture extra sweet. :-)
