Aww that kid of mine

My oldest is a 16 year old. She has said somethings recently that have touched me deeply. She is big into doing surveys that friends post in MySpace. I usually don't read them but I read one not too long ago and one question was Name 3 things you love. Part of her answer was most of her family especially her baby brother and her grandparents! I loved reading that. I never thought she would tell people how much she loves my parents. Yesterday I read another one. They asked if there was anyone she loved more than her family. She said that while she has those she loves as much as her family; me and her baby brother are in her words "like my world". I knew how much she loved her brother but to read that about me; brought me to tears. How about you have your kids ever said anything that made you melt? (and this is not to say I don't melt when my 3 year old looks at me and says "ob ooo" - his way of sayin love you)

I bet that was really nice of you to hear! Sometimes it's hard for us to say it to our parents, but we do love you guys...and that's one of the other ways we express it, by telling others. I don't have any kids of my own (onyl 18), but my nieces always say stuff that make me get so happy! I have actully made a couple of discussions about it :) But my niece Alyie always tells me how much she loves me and how beautiful I am! :) She's 6 now, Mickayla, my other niece, is 4.

My kids surprise me occasionally with interesting expressions of affection. Somewhere I have a hand made birthday card (hagarmark, the very best) In it my son says "Dear mom, thank you for putting up with our disrespect and misbehavior" which is hilarious, cause they were really great kids. This is from about age ten. A later one he says, philosophically "If a man has not a loving family, what has he" in another hagarmark card. Over the years the kids made this cards and always drew an emblem on back. Their last name was/is Hagar. For an idea about my daughter I will have to go get a link to post. Both of them post here occasionally and I loved her response to a recent discussion. I will post this, and add the link later, cause with my luck, I would lose what I have written.

i dont have kids but i am about 16 and have a myspace and trust me..she meant what she wrote. when doing these surveys...you just tend to leak out with what you truly feel and forget who will read because there are so many questions. Im happy for you. I love my mm and sister more than anything. id die for them
