Conversations With Gavin


"Mom, it's kind of fun being sick." My response, "Oh really, why?" Gavin, "because then you and daddy have to get me anything I ask for." Way to look on the bright side kid!


Yesterday when I picked Gavin up from school (the first time he’s seen me since Thursday night) I was so excited to see him. I grabbed him and hugged him and said, “I missed you so much, did you miss me?” His reply, “Yeah, but when we get home will you tell me when your done cuddling me so I can go to Kyle’s?” That boy really knows how to make a girl feel loved.


Gavin looked outside today at about 5:30pm and said to himself, "Man, I just woke up!" I guess the time change is affecting him.


Gavin pointing at Steve's belly says, "Daddy you have a belly hole." Steve says, "No that's my belly button." Pulling up his shirt an pointing at his own belly button Gavin says, "This is a belly button dad, that's a belly hole."


Today I was explaining to Gavin why Steve and I were married in the temple. I was telling him we wanted to be sealed to our family for time and all eternity. That we are so happy Heavenly Father blessed us with such a sweet boy and we will be together forever.

Gavin - "You know what mom, when I was in Heaven I was thinking the exact same thing. I wanted to come to you and dad and be together forever."

Me - "So we were on the same page, huh?"

Gavin - "Yep, the exact same page."

How did I get so lucky?!


Gavin was out with some neighborhood kids today who were selling kool-aid on the corner when he ran inside and said,

Gavin - "Mom there's strangers outside!"

Me -"What!"

Gavin - "There's strangers outside and they wanta buy punch!"

Way to go bud!
