Sofia wanted a snack before bed and Chris gave her a handful of cereal but on one condition: after each bite, she needed to say why she loved her mommy. What resulted, we never could have anticipated.
Mom, I love you because...
~You make good meat.
~You let me play outside.
~You're the best at rubbing my back.
~You give me hard stuff to work on and I like to learn new things.
~You're the best science teacher.
~You make the best food.
~You play the best shows.
I would love to add commentary to each of her statements due to the hysterics we ended up in. However, the simplicity of her statements are worth preserving just as they are.
She is my little dear. And I love her too. :)
