A Few of MY Favorite Things

Kenzie adores all the songs from the Sound of Music, as any well parented child ought! Today I was inspired to substitute some (alot) of the words, a personalization and reflection upon our day. It's a quick rewrite - read (or better yet SING) with grace.

Raindrops on daughters and whiskers on Onyx
Bright baby burp cloths and gas helping tonics
Brown bundled packages sent by Amazon
These are a few of my favorite things!

Cleaned up living rooms and freshly baked cookies
FlipFlops and Twinings and pizza with veggies
Parents driving hours to spoil us all
These are a few of my favorite things

Kenzie's pajamas with white lace on the trim
Sweet sleeping Judah, prayer blanket upon him
Joshua's laughter filling up our home
These are a few of my favorite things!
