treasure

A random evening last week, and my daughter and I are splashing together in a bedtime bubble bath. Seemingly out of nowhere, she turns, looks me right in the eye, and incredibly earnestly she says to me:

"Mama, you're my treasure!"

Sigh.

Because of this little girl, my heart is so often alive with happiness and wonder... for this I will always be eternally grateful to her.

Friends of mine recently adopted 2 babies from another country, and before they left they had a little party to celebrate with friends.

They had a book where they asked everyone to write them piece of new-parent advice. I said to keep a place where you can write down all the funny/cute/sweet/silly things that your children say so you can remember it forever.

A treasure indeed!
