Just Say Yes

Lucas started blowing bubbles in his milk
giggles escaping from his mouth between blows
"Lucas" I started to say to chastise
But then I paused...
"Hold on, let me get my camera"

Then I took lots of pictures
and we smiled
it made a mess"just for Mom's pictures"
Lucas told dad

but it was worth it...

sometimes it's okay to say yes.


  1. Isn't that one of the best mantras for parenting (especially boys)?! My other one is: sometimes it's better to just close my eyes and not watch!! :)

  2. Mine have been into this lately too, now they think that they NEED a straw to drink milk.

    I am so with Mamma Christine, just close the eyes.

  3. Strawberry milk at best too. It is strawberry right? I mean it looks pink to me. Sometimes you just have to let a kid be a kid. Think of it as a science project for him to learn.

  4. Yep it is milk with Strawberry Quik.. so good! And do you know it adds calcium? :)

  5. I totally agree with this. You know, life it too short and too serious to say now to everything. Sometimes you just have to make a mess and laugh.

    This is really a powerful message you are tell here. Love it.

  6. That is too funny. It is good to let them be kids. More and more they are losing their innocence sooner and sooner.

  7. I liked seeing the pictures! I'm glad you said yes ... it was fun to read/see.

  8. and now i need to get myself a glass of chocolate milk. reed's dairy choc milk. have you heard of it???

  9. So cute! What a fun mom you are!

  10. I love it when I remember to enjoy the moment rather than worry about the mess.

    Great to *meet* you. I also love BYU, love macs, love swing dancing, and have moved way too many times.

  11. You are a good mom. And you are right.

  12. I was never allowed to do that! :(
