Today we cuddled and snuggled and I made sure to slow down and soak it in. Today you had a tantrum over watching a video and whined over the fact that something wasn’t in the exact place you wanted it. Today you called the crust of bread “it’s jacket”. Today we painted your toenails for the first time and you loved it. Today I watched you make your own chocolate milk. Today you got mad at me when I said you couldn’t have sushi for lunch. Today when I wiped the soup off your face after lunch, you screamed and cried and flailed your hands around, and then proceeded to dip your finger back in the soup, wipe it all over your face so that YOU could take the napkin to wipe it off. Today you made me laugh, a sincere laugh, as we played in the bath. Today you hung onto me like you haven’t in a long time… and told me you missed me when I was gone for the weekend.
Today I love you.
In a way that I never thought I could love anything or anyone.
You’re not perfect and you challenge me every.day.
But everyday I realize your perfect for me and everyday I am challenged to be a better person.
I am so thankful.
