There are moments in my life that simultaneously fill my heart with so much joy I fear it might explode, and shatter it into a million tiny pieces all at the same time. I had one of these moments on Saturday.
Matt was at work, I loaded all three kids, the stroller, water bottles and soccer stuff into the car, strapped kids in, put on my sunglasses and started the drive to soccer. We’re driving along when suddenly Olivia’s voice pops up in the back seat…
Olivia: Momma? Your da best Mommy in da whole world!
Me: Awww, honey, thank you. That means a lot to me.
Olivia: Momma? You know what I be I grow up?
Me: What honey? What are you going to be when you grow up?
Olivia: A great Mommy, just like you.
If only, Baby Girl, if only.
