Tonight as I was getting my oldest Lil Diva ready for bed she looked at me and said "Mommy, do you know I wouldn't trade you for any other mommy in the whole world because you are the best one and I love you!"
They melt my heart when they say things like this - especially when it comes out of nowhere like that. She may be just 5 years old but I think somewhere in there she knew that Mommy needs a lil pat on the back every now and then too.
Now, if only it were possible to store it up and keep some of it for later? I'm sure I'll need a bit of that untainted love during the teenage years when I am no longer the best mommy in the whole world.
Until then, I will savor these moments. I will drink them in, relish them and celebrate how wonderful I am (on some days, lol!) in the eyes of my babies! For even though I make mistakes and stumble along the way in this adventure called motherhood - there are obviously a few things I must be doing right & that my friends makes my heart happy! :)
