This morning, as I stood in front of our sink, loading the breakfast dishes into the dishwasher, Judah came running in. The look on his face clearly showed that he had an important thought to share.
"Mommy! Paisley really likes books and babies! I like lots of trucks!" I nodded my head and told him that yes, that is very true. Paisley does like books and babies and of course, he really likes trucks.
I decided to dig a bit deeper and asked him "What does Mommy like?" He paused, his face broke into a smile and then he said "Mommy likes ME!"
In parenting, I often feel like I'm missing the mark and that I'm not all that I should be. Most days, I feel like I wish I would've have played more, been more patient and done many other things better. But, once in awhile, I get a glimpse of the fact that he totally gets it. When he thinks about the things that his Mommy likes, I'm so glad that he puts himself at the top of the list.
