Love and obedience

The kids were with Aunt Kelly yesterday, and with Grandma the day before while Mommy was at the dentist.  I was hoping to already be "fixed."  But I wanted to write this down before I forgot.
When I left the kids, I gave the, "Please be obedient..." speech.  Caleb answered both times, "Of course, we will obey because we love (Grandma/ Kelly)!"

Very sweet.  Although it got me thinking that perhaps I should remind him of that, since I think it's a little harder to obey mamma.  =)
And such a good reminder for mamma...
"If you love me, you will obey what I command."  John 14:15
I will say, these last few months of mouth pain have certainly increased my sympathy for teething little people, as well as reminding me how hard it is to be kind and loving when you are in a lot of pain!!

I often think of how horrible teething must be. So painful. I can't imagine getting so many teeth in such a short period of time.
