Last week Madeline bumped her finger and immediately came running to me. She was quite obviously in distress and held the previously mentioned sore finger up in the air. I had no idea what she wanted me to do with her little finger until she pressed it to my lips for a kiss and cheerfully went on her way. My heart melted. And it wasn’t just a one time thing. It’s happened multiple times since then and every time she asks for one of my magic mommy kisses, my heart melts again. How grateful I am to be her mother.
And if you can’t tell, Madeline is all girl. She’ll bring me my heels and necklaces to walk around the house. When I’m fixing my hair she grabs a brush and a curling iron (don’t worry it’s not plugged in) to ‘fix her hair’ too. She loves when I tickle her cheeks with a make-up brush and she can try on hats all day. She is my little girl and I love her.
