It's been a while since an installment of Daniel-isms. I had to share these with you since 75% of my readers are also my kids grandparents(:

1.) The other day as we were leaving to get the kids from school Daniel pitched a big ole fit about something. I fussed at him and sent him to the van. We rode to school in silence. Then as we sat in line to get the kids from the back of the van I hear,

"I just love you Mom."

"I love you too buddy."

"I'm sorry I was mean to you" (remember he is FOUR!)

"It's ok D, I know you were just sad you couldn't go with Poppy. But thank you so much for saying you're sorry. That makes me so happy."

"It makes my heart feel better."

How amazing is that? My four year old gets that saying sorry makes his heart feel better, AND he can actually verbalize that thought. I know adults that can't do that! What an awesome little soul he has. I can't wait to see what God does with him!

2.) The other day the boys were being kind of wild in the house (weird right?) and Jason told Daniel to settle down. His response..

"Daddy, I just got some fight in my body."
