My sweet Erin

I was having a rough morning this morning and was very frustrated. I wasn't frustrated at my girls but unfortunately I was taking my frustrations out on them. Erin then so sweetly asked me to be happier and to talk happier. So I said something nicely back to her and she said "you talked happy, see don't you feel happier!" She was right I felt much better. Her sweet spirit helped me realize the importance of using happy tones.
She is such a sweet girl and helps me so much. She is so very good at bringing a smile to my face and always makes me laugh. Here are some of my favorite Erin moments:
As we pulled into the gas station" Mommy what are we doing?" "We need to get some more gas for the car." "What happened to the other gas, did it fall out as we hit bumps?"

Erin crawled out of bed shortly after putting her down for the night concerned about her monkey. I wasn't in the mood to look for it so I assured her that monkey was already asleep and didn't want to be disturbed. She informed me that he can't fall asleep because he can't close his eyes.

While cooking breakfast on a rainy morning Erin was singing "it's raining it's pouring' over and over again. The she suddenly changed the words when she looked straight at me and sang "It's raining it's pouring the old lady is cooking breakfast."

While sitting in sacrament meeting Erin asked when was it time to go to nursery. I explained to her that we needed to sing one more song and say one more prayer and then it would be time. She took this as a cue to sing, so off the top of her lungs she began singing like the little mermaid.

As I was making mac and cheese for lunch and draining the water off my hand slipped and I lost half the noodles. In frustration I exclaimed, Oh Pooh! Erin hearing this stopped what she was doing and told Lily "My mommy needs me." and she came running.

I sure love this girl and I am so thankful for her. She is a wonderful daughter and big sister. I am the luckiest mother in the world to have her (and her sister).
