The Moment You Think About as a Mom
Today I sat on the floor while Bella played, looking at local pumpkin patches on my phone. Suddenly I felt her little arms thrown around me, and she said in my ear, “I love you Mama.”
And wow. What a feeling to hear your daughter say that, unprompted and not in response to anything. I can’t tell you the number of times I wondered when that would happen with her. What it would be like to hear her little voice say it and mean it.
It really takes the sting out of her saying, “Dada” first. 😉
