The Sweet Moments

I'm looking out the sunroom windows at Hank and Lorelai sitting by the pool laughing and talking. The cold snap has left us and it's a beautiful sunny 70 degree day here in the South Carolina Lowcountry. I heard Lor on the phone a few minutes ago with a friend saying, I promised my daddy that I'd hang out with him this afternoon. Hank was beaming! If there ever was a girl who had her daddy wrapped around her little finger...well...it's our Lorelai.

Ordinarily, I'd go bouncing out there too, but I'm letting him have his moment. I had my moment last night. Hank had fallen asleep by the fireplace and I was upstairs in bed reading when Lor came in, climbed in, and snuggled up by me. After a few minutes she said, Did you know that you have a smell? Not QUITE knowing how to take that, I replied, Well goodness, I TOOK a bath just a couple of hours ago. NO...she replied, It's a MOMMY smell. And with that, she took a deep breath, smiled, snuggled in a little closer and fell asleep.


Oh yes...The Sweet Moments...they really keep us going, don't they??

  8. Is it weird my mommy is here with us this weekend and she sleeps with me? Mommys are the best and I hope Tess will always cuddle in my lap.

    Like today at 33 years old, I laid my head in my moms lap and let her play with my hair while we watched my babies play.

    Moms are the best.

  12. Oh now, well, that's just the best. When I tucked the little man in tonight he told me he didn't want the sitter to come tomorrow afternoon because he liked me better. I would certainly hope so! Sounds silly, but it made me smile.

  13. Oh, that is so sweet!

    It must be the weekend for surprise visits to parents. Yesterday morning, Kevin and I decided on a whim to hit the road and visit my mama and daddy in Nashville. We had a great visit.
