hugs and cuddles from Connor.
Sadie saying, “I love you Mom” or “Mom you’re so pretty!”
Ari’s favorite poem he’s given me, “Roses are red, violets are blue. Chocolate is sweet but not as sweet as you.”
reading Nancy Drew with Maya as I brush her hair at night.
Yesterday at Costco Sadie was tugging on my pants almost pulling them down repeatedly. A grandma in line behind me leaned over and said, “Dearie you know your daughter is showing off your underwear but isn’t it wonderful we have little ones to tug on us?” I left embarrassed and practically in tears but afterwards I was thinking about what she said. I am grateful for my little ones and though they test my patience they give me so much joy and happiness. I feel grateful and blessed to be called their mother.
