Hi Mommy


This morning, as I sat on the floor, eating my breakfast, Baby came and stood beside me.  She is at just the right height now so that when I sit on the floor, and she stands next to me, we are eye-to-eye.  She was babbling about reading a book (“read it the book” she says) and I was looking over the growing collection of books that she was putting on my lap.  Then, for a brief moment, she paused.  I turned my head towards her,  her face an inch or two from mine.  She smiled a purely happy, beautiful smile and said “Hi Mommy.”  In the moment, I could not have stopped myself from smiling if I had tried with all my might.  The memory of her face and that smile stayed with me all day.
