Yesterday, I took my little dd to Target to get Valentines for her 1st grade class party. While we were browsing the aisles, she mentioned that she wished she could get me a present for Valentine's Day. So I told her she could pick out a little something in the candy aisle, and I wouldn't look, and she could give it to me the next day. She was so excited!
So a few minutes later, she returns to where I had been waiting for her at the end of the aisle (pretending to not look) carrying this big heart shaped box of candy in one arm, and in the other arm she struggled to carry this huge vase filled with a dozen long stemmed red roses!
I saw her and got all misty eyed, and told her thank you so much for the flowers, but you don't need to buy mommy roses! I know how much you love me, and all I really want is something small and sweet (still pretending to not see the candy). We put the flowers back and she slipped the heart shaped box into our shopping basket.
Some days I think she is just the sweetest child ever born!
