Her father took her to the bus stop this morning. A few minutes after they left my cell phone rings. I didn't get to it in time. So I looked. It was from my hubbys phone. I of course called it back. My daughters sweet little voice answered. "Mommy I miss you.Have a good day" I say it back. "Mommy I will see you when I get home, can we watch a movie?" I of course say yes. Has your child ever givien you a declaration of love that caught you off guard?

It is those times that it is more precious, and memorable. My little sis sometimes catches me off guard and it is those times that I find it more special, meaningful and heartwarming. Have to cherish those times above all else for them not to fade away and spend time with them before they think they are to old or cool to hang with mom/dad anymore. After the baby is born you might have to shedule little mother/daughter dates of just you and her so she won't feel so left out because of the baby taking so much of your time and she is used to it all being hers.

I think mothers and fathers should remember to reflect more upon nice moments like these. It seems to me that when the child is bad or doesn't feel affectionate they should be allowed to be so. It would make the moments when they say "I love you" more meaningful because they have not be coerced.

How sweet! My son is constantly telling me that he loves me and his little 18 month old sister just learned how to say it too. It is really cute when she says it. Sometimes she will walk up to me and give me a hug and say, "maaamaaaaaaa" and rest her head on me.

When my son went on a school trip for a week, he called from one of the stop offs on the way to the ferry and sang 'I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you.....' I asked if he was in a closed booth - he wasn't. I was touched that he felt able to tell me even tho' everyone could hear him.

OH YES!! I have been homeshooling for 3 years and decided this year to put them in public school.(sniff,sniff) Yesterday morning, their first day, I was talking with my 6 year old son. I asked him if he was ready for the big day. He said yes. I asked him if he was going to be ok being away from mommy all day. He got this far off look for a second, then his beautiful blue eyes filled with tears. He said, "I'm really going to miss you mommy!" I thought I would turn to mush!! Those precious moments make the occasional bad attitudes not so harsh, huh?!

Well my little one doesn't really talk yet. My daughter is very cuddley with her dad. She is 100% a daddys girl. If he and I are both sitting on the couch she goes to him. A few days ago she woke up from her nap and I brought her down - I tried to give her to her daddy thinking she would get up from my lap any way and she said "no". She sat with me for about 10 minutes which she doesn't do very often and then went to her dad. I was shocked because normally if I even touch my husband she is yelling "MINE" and she actually wanted me. When its just her and I at home she cuddles with me and gives me hugs but when he's home she is all about her daddy. Anyway my point is she wanted me and that was enough to make me tear up! I thought FINALLY!
