All I Need to Hear...

The last two evenings, Lucy has casually and spontaneously said to me,
"Mom? This was a great day...."
I don't ask her if she had a great day or anything.
She just says it out of the blue.
It's her 4 year old way of saying, "Thanks."
And that is all I need to hear. That's the payback for all the hard work.
For all the flailing, sweating, extra special things, fun ideas, projects, exciting trips, watching, cheering, encouraging and paying attention at all times.
It's funny how that sentence is all you need for all that work but it is all I need and it's the greatest.

My Photo

I'm a 39 year old stay-at-home mom. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. I have lived in the big city and in the mountains, but am happy to be back in the Midwest, raising the fam. I enjoy laughing, wine, bad karaoke, US Weekly, running, cemetaries, cheese sticks and short hair-dos. In my previous life, I was class-clown and a wanna-be comedian. In my professional life, I'm a journalism major with 10 years of marketing and PR experience. I dream of being a cast member on Saturday Night Live and working at Disney World as Snow White.
