Just When You Were About To Write Off Your Day As Terrible

The conversation went like this:

Mommy?
(whispering in the dark, drifting off to sleep)
Yes? (lying down on the floor next to mini as she drifts off to sleep)
What are you going to dream about? (Note: mini never talks about dreams)
That's an excellent question. What are you going to dream about?
I'm going to dream about you!
That's a wonderful idea. Well then I'll dream about you too! What will we be doing in our dream?
Playing....(big smile, voice fades out, her eyes close...)

Yup. This totally makes up for the twenty-seven time outs we endured together this weekend.

Sooooooooo (endless "o's" cute. My heart just got a little bit bigger and less resembles a raisin. Thank God they're cute--it probably saves them from being sent out on an ice float more times than they realize.

Okay, that is such a precious moment. It's amazing, one minute they make you want to pull your hair out and the next.....I got the chills. Thanks for sharing.
