"Mommy, you look just like a princess" We had had a great evening away from our boys on Friday, and Sunday was full of bad attitudes and stress about the week to come. It was one of those weekends where it would have been hard to explain to non-parents why having kids is great. And then, in the middle of Sunday afternoon, The Kid said those words and made his mother melt completely.
Any award in the world would not have made her feel any more amazing than those words at that moment. And THAT is why being a parent is great.
