Smoochy Mama

I was gone for 2 days, and I missed my chicks like I had been gone for years. They missed me, too, which was evident by the looks of surprise and awe when I picked them up at the sitter's. Seriously, you'd think I HAD been gone for a year. ONE day. ONE day I don't pick them up, and the shocked looks I get upon returning are just crazy.

Jenna: "MOMMY?! MOMMY!! I missed you SOOOOO much! Mommy! Mommy! Ooooo, I LOVE you, Mommy!"
Claire: "Momeeee! Mommeeee! Mommmeeeee!!! Luv ooo, luv ooo!!"

This is all going on whilst I'm being tackled and climbed upon, much like a mother opossum. Do opposums eat their young?

On to more blabbing...last night, Jenna told me that I was a "smoochilada." I'm assuming that's something like an enchilada, minus the beans and cheese. Then she explained to me that SHE was an apple smoochilada, and Claire was a banana smoochilada. So all evening, I was bombarded with requests to "Give the apple smoochilada a smoochilada." Translation: Give Jenna a kiss.

10pm, I'm in the girls' room giving them a last kiss before going to bed. I lean over to Jenna, and she whispers, "I love you, my smoochilada."

I love baby kisses. Okay, so my kid is 3, but they are still baby kisses to me.

Isn't it great to be loved?

Doesn't get ANY better. Sometimes we need to take a moment and realize "that was one of the best moments in my life." And savor it!
