As soon as I woke up yesterday, Evie (prompted by Chris,) leaned over and whispered "Happy Mother's Day!" In her excitement, she also threw in "Happy birthday, Mommy!"
We cuddled up, and I thanked her for letting me be a mom. I told her it was a special day, all because of her. Then I listed some of the things I love about her. "Evie, I love your little dimple. I love your smile. I love that you are kind. I love that you share. I love your sweet face and your little body. I love your giggles."
She stared into my eyes. "Mommy, I love your..."
Oh! What would she say? How sweet! What a moment we were about to have! And on Mother's Day!
"Mommy, I love your soda."
