I woke up this morning and Boo had a little gift for me…she picked it out herself:
My sweet little girl:
Last night we went out to celebrate my mother-in-law’s 60th birthday. Early in the night, my sister-in-law Jen was using Boo’s room to get ready….she did a final spritz of perfume and walked down the hall. Boo stepped out into the hall and said in all seriousness, as if Jen had left her the most amazing gift:
Aunt TT (Jen), THANK you for the smell you just left in my room.
We laughed about it all night.
I don’t dress up a lot and when I walked out of my closet last night in my little black dress Boo lit up and said with amazing enthusiasm: Mommy….wow. LOVE it. I’d love a dress with one shoulder. She’s great at compliments.
I was reflecting on how much I love being a mother….the little things that Boo does that bring me so much joy every day. I love watching her wade through everyday life…..I love recording her sayings, her actions, and every little thing I learn from her. I love reading back on the things my mother wrote down about me at the same age….all those records are such a wonderful gift my mother gave me.
Happy Mother’s Day!
