Are you smiling at your kids??

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Psalms 51:12

This was the topic in the 24/7 class I take with Chelsea Cameron, it's about parenting, also how to be a better spouse. Chelsea raised a lot of great points, she ask:
Do you smile at your children? 
Do you delight in them?
Do they think you enjoy them?
Do you have your children's heart?
I took this class last year, but it is soo great to hear it again, and set a new tone in our home. Last year I practiced smiling at them, letting them know that I do delight in them, and that I do enjoy them around me! It works!! A mothers attitude set the tone of the house, they look to the moms face, hows she feeling, is she happy or disappointed in me?  Good stuff! After class a group of us mommies go to a park and have a picnic, I took this shot, then Coco took over the pictures, she took a bunch, here are a few
 She did a lot of up close shots of us ladies, out of respect I wont post the others, they were laughing saying these are Jessica's pores.....
I think your beautiful Jewls!!!
