This morning, while I was busy getting backpacks ready and fixing Brooke's lunch, Madeline was trying to talk to me. I was listening to her, but not looking at her directly in the middle of my busy-ness. "Mommy, do you know why I want to go to school three days not five?" Without looking up, I muttered, "mm-hm". She said, "It's because I like you and like to give you kisses." I melted. I immediately dropped what I was doing and held her beautiful face in my hands while she smothered me with kisses. L-O-V-E!!!
