...came today when she came to me showing me pictures, saying
'mommy!' and she held up a polaroid of me.
'daddy!' as she holds up a polaroid of daddy.
'yes', i answer both times, 'you're so smart!'
'Pictures!' she says. 'yes!' i reply again, rubbing her cheek and telling her how smart she is.
so then i offhandedly remarked to her,
'you just love picutres, don't you?'
'yeah!' she said as she toddled off to go show daddy....
a good day, a very good day. my princess is growing up so fast. it was a stressful day, lots of big decisions and stressful situations, on my one stay home day out of the whole week, but a great day, a really great day!
she just ran in here, uncovered her eyes, and said, 'boo!' and daddy is telling her to come see me now, so he must be doing something important, it must be my turn to play!
