These are the days!
Today is a good mommy day! I was playing with Evan on our 4th level. We where rolling the ball, reading and I was trying to teach him to build with his mega blocks, the usual play with a 19 month old. He walked by me, turned around, looked me straight in the eye and puckered up! He was making kissing motions with his lips and running full throttle towards me. Then he landed on my lap on his knees (which hurt by the way) and planted one right on my cheek! Then my lips, then my other cheek! It was slobbery and wonderful, I couldn't help but smile ear to ear! He had given kisses before but never on his own, he always had to be asked, or I think he was copying me or daddy after we kissed him.
These are the moments when all the worry, all the pain, all sticks in the bicycle wheels of life are worth it! For all the tumbles, all the tears, there is moments like these that make being a mom worth while.
