Valentines Day is here again. I think I have the best 2 Valentines a woman could ask for and I got the best Valentines present a mommy could get last night. While I was at dinner last night with a dear friend, Mark and Daniel went to get me a Valentines Day present. Apparently Daniel saw this book and freaked out (we didn't even know he liked Max and Ruby). So when I got home Daniel brought me the book and said "Happy Valentines Day Mommy", the book is Max's Easter Surprise. I love the gifts kids pick out. That is not the best part. The best part of that Valentines Day gift came at bedtime.
We read stories every night and sing songs before bed. So I grabbed the book and said I would read it to Daniel. To which he replied, "No Mommy I read to you". I thought ok, this won't last long. He then started to read the book, telling me the story he saw through the pictures, "Max and Ruby play with puppy", "Max's belly hungry so he eat", etc. through each page of the book.
For those of you who don't know Daniel is only 2 and extremely animated and full of laughter and joy. He was so proud of himself and proud that he read that book. When he was done I told him I would read it to him and he said "No mommy I done now".
I love love love that little boy. That little chocolate face with the big brown eyes and bright infectious smile. He melts my heart. I love each and every one of these mommy moments. I am so in love with that little boy, God knew what he was doing when he created that child. He grew in my heart and I knew I loved him before I even saw his face. God sets the lonely in families and I am so glad we listened to his call. For when you listen when he is knocking on the door to your heart, that is when you get the "Max and Ruby" moments with a special little boy.
