I was cooking breakfast with N helping me the other morning. He leaned over to me from his stool and said, "Mom, I'm glad you like cooking with me!" I just about started crying right then and there. I love that he values the simple things we do together.
Then last night L, who is 8, comes up to me as I was working on the computer and says, "You must be a confident parent." "Why do you say that?" I ask. "Well because you're a good mom to us." I respond holding back the tears "Yup, you guys are so amazing, I must be doing things right." Hugs and squeezes for my blue eyed boy!
Wow, am I really rearing these amazing little men? They are so wise beyond their years. How lucky I am to be a part of their journey!
