Mamahood can be a tireless, thankless job. You continually give and give and give, so when you get some sweet words from your kids, you hang onto them, read them over and over, maybe even bring it up when they are teenagers. Here are some of the gems I received this past week:
Emma: Mom, I love you so much that I need to come up with a different word to describe it.
Micah: Mama, I like you. You’re my girl.
Me: Emma, what are you thinking about?
Emma: I’m just looking at how beautiful you are.
Emma: Mom, I’m excited to get presents for Christmas, but you’re the best present I could ever want.
What can I say? It’s been a good week to be a mom.
