I Have the Cutest Kids in the World… No, Seriously the Cutest.

Cutest Kids in the World

I love my kids. They are not only cute by appearance but their personalities are truly adorable. The youthful innocence they keep is beautiful. This week, mostly on Tuesday, we shared a couple of experiences that kept me in stitches.


Malia – Previously in the week she had hounded, my beautiful wife, Nicole to see if she could have a toy cell phone when they were at the store. During breakfast on Tuesday, Malia remembered the cell phone. “Mom can I have my cell phone now?”, she asked. Nicole responded sweetly, “As soon as you do some jobs for me, like I told you.” Malia beamed brightly back, “Mom, I did my jobs. I brushed my teeth and ate breakfast and said my prayers and played with Kate and watched Scooby Doo and gave hugs.”

We all laughed at her beautiful young perspective. For her, the things that fill her day are her jobs. How would it be if all we had to do each day was brush our teeth, say our prayers, and give hugs.

Brooke and Isaac – This same day, a few minutes later, Brooke and Isaac loaded into my car so I could take them to school. They were having a small argument about wether our not we had taken our dog Nala on vacation with us. Brooke tried to deny that she had said something so I started to sing an impromptu song in my goofy way, “Being wrong, oh it’s ok, as long as you don’t roll in the hay.” Isaac jumped in excitedly, “I want to roll in the hay! That sounds fun!” Brooke immediately retorted, “No you don’t, there are needles in it.”

Needles in haystacks, rolling in the hay, and jobs for kids kept me in stitches. Now you know why I have the Cutest Kids in the World!


A Day of Firsts

Last night as the boys & I were around the kitchen counter Malia quietly folded her arms on the granite countertop & plopped her head down on her arms. She then cauqht us all off gaurd by proceeding to give her first solo prayer.

Malia – Deawl Heavenwee Fadder (Dear Heavenly Father)

Pause, Pause, Pause… (She sweetly looks up in apprehension)

Me – Go ahead

Pause, Pause, Pause… (Still looking for confirmation)

Me – Go ahead, say it.

Malia – Deawl Heavenwee Fadder, Tankful for Mama, Dada, Bookee, Izee, Tay-tay, Austee (Dear Heavenly Father thankful for Momma, Dadda, Brooke, Isaac, Taylor, Austin)

Pause, Pause, Pause… (not sure how to proceed)

Malia – Deawl Heavenwee Fadder, Tankful for Mama, Dada, Andwu, Cobee, Andwu, Cobee, Andwu, Cobee (Dear Heavenly Father thankful for Momma, Dadda, Andrew, Colby, Andrew, Colby, Andrew, Colby(her cousins))

Pause, Pause, Pause..

Nibbling & slurping noises as she starts in on her soup.

Me – In the name…

Malia – Amen (more nibbling & slurping noises)

We had another first yesterday. Isaac wrote his first postal letter yesterday to his cousin Ali Hillam.

Isaac’s letter said,

“Dear Ali,
Malia said her first prayer.
