The best thing I've heard all day

After a day of laundry, super market shopping, volunteering at the school, dinner and packing for a boy scout family over night outing, I was ready for the afternoon to end. I welcomed the setting of the sun and the closing of the shades on one more day.

Sadly enough however, just because the night has set in doesn't mean the day is over by any means. I still had plenty to do and to top it off I lock horns with honey, ugh! Nothing to eventful, we just didn't see eye to eye. Mostly because his eye was closed, the freak.

The kids are in bed and I go do my "tuck ins." Mina was exhausted and just about ready to slip into la-la land, but Michael, well as usual he was still wide awake. Although I knew he too was exhausted he just wanted to talk about his day and anything else that popped into his head. Before I left his room he requested my company, just until he fell asleep. I explained that I had a few more things to do, then I would take a quick shower and come back a check on him. That is just what I did. Immediately after my shower I tip-toed back into his room, lean down to kiss him and laid my cheek on his. He reaches up, places his hand on my face, and in a voice full of sleep and so sweet that it made me cry he said "oh mommy, you smell so pretty." He never said another word, he was fast asleep. Perfect way to end the day.

Sweet Dreams
