To My Sweeties...

Wendy at 1 year old, 9/2007

To know that I'm the one you call when you have a nightmare...

To know that I get to kiss your boo-boos and tickle your ribs...

To know that I get to read you story after story (after story after story)...

To know that you always got the hiccups right around 3 p.m. and made my whole belly shake...

To know what the back of your neck smells like after a bath...and when you NEED a bath...

To know that I get to see every stage of your development...

To see my eyes looking back at me in your faces...

To see your Daddy's determination and strength in your individual personalities...

To be able to talk with you about Baby Jesus in the middle of an ordinary bathtime on an ordinary Thursday night...

This...these things, these times...make my Mother's Day complete!
