I'm sure everyone will agree that being a parent is the greatest feeling in the world. So, I want to hear all those cute stories about your children that make parenting so great. I love hearing about the cute things that kids do. My little boy is only two months old now and there is so many things that he does that I just love. Yesterday we started this game where I would ask him where he was hiding his smile and ask him where he put it. He would then give me the biggest smile and start cooing and gooing. That would just make my heart melt. This kept him entertained for most of the day when he wasn't sleeping. So, I would like to hear your stories now.

Awwww so sweet. Our kids are grown now and our 2 grandchildren live out of state so we don't see them very often. I do have a story about our oldest daughter who is now in her 30's. She was potty trained and was about 3 yrs. old. We went to a hardware store to buy a ladder. She went to the next aisle and saw the display toilets. She left the store a souvenir but was unhappy the toilet wouldn't flush. I didn't see her actually do it but she came running through the store with her pants to her knees saying she did it. Don't remember how she got away from me but was only gone less than about a minute. Everyone around was laughing but not as hard as I was or my husband. It was pretty entertaining.

This daughter doesn't have any children but I do enjoy bringing it up in a crowd when she's right there. She was about three when this happened and she's now 36......lol It's a fun story.

I agree with you bethyboo, being a parent is really a great blessing. Seeing our kid grow and learn something new everyday is really exciting. I have a daughter who have just turned three this january 1. I taught her to say a prayer every night before she goes to bed. After reciting her simple prayer (Angel of God), I taught her to say thank you for the things Jesus gave her (I'm teaching her to count her blessings!). She will say "thank you Jesus for...(she will fill in the the blanks for the things she wants to thank for). One time she prayed spontaneously saying, "Thank you Jesus for my milk, thank you for the chicken I ate, and thank you for mama and papa". It was the sweetest words I have ever heard in my whole life. In her simple mind, she sees her parents already as a blessing. I wish we could all think like a child.

Is that your baby in the picture?? He's beautiful! My kids are half grown now, and it seems they get funnier every day. On Thanksgiving Day, my 7 year old daughter was helping me fold laundry. She loves to help. I walked away for a second and I heard her holler "EWWWWWWWWWWWW" and I said what?? She said "Daddy panties, I'M not folding daddy panties!!" I just thought it was hysterical how she said it. Maybe it's one of those you had to be there things.

In a parent's eyes his or her kid is the most cute, most beautiful one. I have a boy of near 3 years.He has abundant imaginations. Once I tore open an sweater he pointed to the curled wool and said:" look, instant noodles!" There are so many such interesting things. He can find two things that are similar though in our adult eyes they have no relations at all.
