Mushy.

If you are reading this and you don't have kids, there is no way to explain to you what a child can do to your heart with a simple sentence. If you have kids you will understand how your heart can swell, melt and become a big mushy mess at the smallest little thing.

School is starting back soon and I've been trying to pack tons of Mommy/Munchkin time into our schedule. I've been trying to do things with her that I can't do easily when I have the twins with us. This usually results in going to the movies because that's her absolute favorite thing right now.

Saturday (after sweating my arse off doing our yard sale) ( we made $400 by the way) I took her to the Alabama Theater where they were showing the Little Mermaid as part of their Children's Summer Matinees.

We got there, got our snacks and found a seat. We started talking about how pretty the theater was, and she was pointing out some little girls that had come dressed as Ariel, you know the usual chit chat with an almost 4 year old. Then, she looked up at me and said....

Mom, I wish you were a little girl right now....

Oh? Why is that?

Because we would be best friends......

There are absolutely no words I can write, or use to describe to you how that made me feel. If you are a parent, you just know.
