rest hymn


The children LOVE to get into the drawers in this house. This has resulted in the top drawer of the file cabinet being locked for a week until Ben finally took it all apart yesterday. It also results in "crazy mommy" when I'm trying to cook and I can't find anything I need. But yesterday it was cute and endearing and it made me glad I'm not completely anal about my things.

While I was putting away the laundry Banks started to pull things out of Ben's nightstand. He was mostly making a mess but I figured I've gotta get the laundry put away so at least he's not crying at me (see the vicious cycle here?). Well he finds a hymn book in there and starts to thumb through it (as he as the other books in there) but then looks at me and kind of hides it. Then he sneakily walks to the corner of the bed, pulls down my pillow and sits comfortably in the corner. And then, and THEN, he opened the hymn book and sang! It was so awesome! He's turning the pages and going, "aaaaaaahhhhhh," and I tried to get a picture but by the time he was back I was done. But trust me, it was so dang cute.
