The beauty of my life!
My daughter: Mommy, welcome. (Holds out the door for me)
Me: (Tired and stressed from work) How are you?
My daughter: I’m fine. (Gives me a big smile)
Me: (I couldn’t help but smile back)
My daughter: Mommy, carry me.
Me: (I obey).
My daughter: (She kisses me) Mommy, we should have a cool secret greeting.
My daughter: She kisses me 3 times on the lip then one kiss each on my cheeks.
Me: (I smile). That’s cool.
My daughter: (She smiles) Let’s do it again.
Me to my son: Should we try it too?
My son: (He wants to but he was shy but kisses me on the lip and cheeks too).
My daughter: I love you. You are my best mommy ever (She hugs me tight again as I put her down.
Me: I love you too. You are my best daughter ever. (Smiles).
Later in the night, after dinner and baths,
Me: It’s time for bed.
My daughter: But I don’t want to sleep now.
Me: Please go to bed (changing my face)
My daughter: (Grumbles to bed).
Me: (I tuck them in).
My daughter: (Comes down from bed first to drink water, then to pee after the initial pee, then to pick her teddy, then to drink water again …) Me: (Getting angry) You need to stop coming out of bed and go to sleep.
My daughter: (Does her usual puppy face) But you said you loved me
Me: And so?
My daughter: People who love each other don’t stay angry with each other
Me: People who love each other don’t upset each other.
Morale of the story – While getting angry may be normal, love ought to make it difficult to stay angry at those who are dare to our hearts. My little girl talks some sweet realities sometimes.
Have a lovely evening people.
