When your four year old yells from another room to “just relax” followed by a “take a deep breath” I can not help but laugh and be amazed all at the same time. He has soaked up every ounce of his dad and I. Taking each word we speak and properly placing it in every situation. It is something to be seen.
Obviously Brody + Owen have seen mom and dad on a bit of an edge this past month. Certainly the past few weeks with house hunting + offers swirling around our head, they can feel it and were trying to keep it all compressed.
Thank goodness for sweet words like these. I did, just what he said. Relaxed, took a deep breath. And it worked. It held me over perfectly until Owen had a complete meltdown over his pez dispenser being empty. Where than I had to imitate the mind of my four year old and put myself in check!
Love these kids. Love their phrases. Love their faces. Love that they know just how to rub us the wrong way. Just to quickly recover with a quick remark.
We’re doing alright as parents. We certainly aren’t experts. Not even close. But we’ve gotta be doing something right when our four year old can school us every now and then!
