My five year old is a sweetheart. She can be feisty, and loud and stubborn as hell, but her sweetness always shines through.
Over the weekend, we caved and got her something she has been begging for weeks.
Meet Cookie (the girly bird) and the boy bird that is still unnamed, although the eight year old is hoping she’ll go with his choice of Ripjaw.
Who knew two little budgies would make her SO happy – the kid literally bounces with joy all day long. It’s kind of contagious.
Tonight, just before her bedtime, she passed me a little cue card she had cut up with the words, “I LOVE BIRD’S” on it. Yes, she had an apostrophe in there – she’s a character alright.
A couple minutes later, she grabbed it from my hands and said she had to fix it, and came back with this,
I can’t begin to tell you how much those two little words she added, filled my heart with insane amounts of joy.
These are the moments of motherhood, that make the hard ones worth it – times ten.
