Little reminders

My husband loves to leave notes for us. Whether he is out of town or just has to leave the house before we are awake, we usually can find notes telling us how much he loves us and other reminders.

Lucy found a note this morning. We've had a particularly trying morning--a battle of the wills on seemingly everything including eating breakfast, getting dressed, cleaning up, and putting away her "B" (her lovey blankie). So when she found this note she brought it to me and asked me to read it, I was delighted to read John's hand-writing: "Lucy, be a very good girl for Mommy!"

I asked her, "Have you been a good girl for me today?"

She looked at me and thought about it for a minute, then said, "Well, no, but maybe I'll be a good girl on Sunday."

Hey, one day is better than none!

I LOVE the honesty of a 3-year-old. She is the best, even when she's bad. Hugs to both of you today (OK, all of you)---Cessy
