Like nectar to a hungry bee

GIRL has recently developed an affection for her two baby dolls. Every night she puts them to bed, cozily tucking a small blanket around each one. One doll sleeps in the toy pack-n-play and one doll on the couch/bed we have in the playroom. She carefully pats each one and kisses them goodnight. It has become a ritual for her, before she goes to bed. I love watching her as she takes the time to tuck them in - just right.

Today, when I picked her up from school, she was sitting in a circle listening to her teacher read a story. As soon as she saw me, she leapt up "MOMMY!!!" All soft, rosy cheeks, mussed hair and dirt smudges lunged at me and tilted her head up for a kiss, wrapping her arms around my neck. Like nectar to a hungry bee. Better than chocolate. Infinitely...

Don't you wish you could put moments like that in a bottle and open them up when you need to feel that again?

HRH greets me like this when I pick him up from preschool. No matter what, it makes my day.

Happy VD.

I love having a daughter more than I ever imagined for all of these reasons.

Girl sounds SO cute. Babou just overwhelms me sometimes, too. It's just amazing how much your heart is theirs for the taking, how beautiful and perfect they are--it is almost overwhelming!

Awwww...the little mommy. My Girl-Child is the same way. In fact, I had to "babysit" while she was at preschool Monday morning. So when I picked her up I put her baby doll in the dolly stroller and brought her with me and she thought that was the coolest thing ever.

The Queen does that with approximately 27 of her baby dolls and animals. All over the house. It's lovely and so sweet. What a lovely day you had today after the lousy one yesterday. Cheers!
