Toasty, Warm Monday Love

My youngest is six.  Somehow she has miraculously uncovered DNA that allows her to be the best cleaner I’ve ever seen.  She is willing to whip anybody’s room into shape.  She tidies, makes the bed and arranges all items in the room in an artistic way.  Could babies have been switched at the hospital?

This morning, she made me breakfast.  A toasted slice of whole wheat bread with strawberry jam.  She cut into the shape of a heart and served it to me.  It was just the thing I needed on a Monday morning when I was drowning in all of my shortcomings as a mother.

Toasty warm hearts full of Monday love going out to all you Moms out there.  My kids keep my head above the water when I’m sure I’m going down.  Hope yours do, too.

    That must be the sweetest thing I have seen in a long time. I just had to comment and tell you how much I loved it. Endearing, really.
