Each night the boys would crawl into their sleeping bags and we would play a game we call "Who am I?" before lights out. Simply, one person describes a person, place or thing and the others try to guess the answer. For example, "I have three toes and move very slowly. Who am I?" Answer: a sloth.
On one particular evening Max began, "I am the mother of two blondies..."
I held my breath as he paused in thought. How would he describe me...as having no self-control, a sharp tongue, or any number of weaknesses my children are subjected to much too often?
He continued, "...and I like to laugh...a lot."
Happily, Luca knew the answer and shouted, "Mama!" as they both rolled to kiss me.
Thank you Lord. I love my boys.
