It Brought a Tear to My Eye

On Friday I sent The Little Miss off to school and the she had a planned overnight with her former nanny which she has been looking forward to since I mentioned it earlier in the week. Knowing I wouldn’t see the monkey until the next day we gave her extra hugs and kisses. I was going to miss her.

Me: Ok, baby, give Mama extra hugs and kisses since I’m not going to see you until tomorrow.

TLM: Ok mama, I love you.

Me: I love you too. Does it make you sad that we’re not going to see each other until tomorrow?

TLM: No, I won’t miss you.

Me: Really? How come?

TLM: Because Mama, you’re always with me in my heart.

Seriously? From a 3 year old? I love that little creature.

Oh my - TLM has it all figured out and at such an early age. What a lucky girl.

When my little guy was about that age he told me that he was a little chilly just after being tucked in. When I asked him if he wanted another blanket, he said, "No Mommy, your kisses always keep me warm." I'm almost crying just writing that.

Oh geez. Between you and Gigi, I'm practically sobbing here.

Lovely moment that will live with you (and now with us) forever.
