The joys of motherhood

are often few and far between. But this is the exchange that took place between my son Mason (almost 4) and my daughter, Jane (almost 6).

Jane: "Mason, look, I made you something."

This something she made was a "card" on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper. Blue paper that my MIL gave us for them to draw on, make paper airplanes out of, whatever.

It was folded in 3rds. And she said, "Open it."

Mason: "Jane! You did a good job on this! Is this for ME?"

Jane: "Yes, I made it for you."

Mason: "Wow, Jane. It's really great! Did you make this for me?"

Jane: "Yes, Mason, it's for you."

Mason: "Jane, this is really good work! I am SO proud of you!"

Jane: "Thanks, Mason."

This was the exchange between my two youngest children today in the van after we got Jane from the bus stop. It was SO sweet and sincere. And it doesn't happen that often. So, I wanted to write it down before I forgot. :)

Awww! Don't you love those days? That's so sweet! Reminds me of Danielle's first day of school this year - we left and were headed home when Marcus said, "Danielle looks beautiful today, Mom." It just melted me!

Holy carp! I can't believe your kids are that old!

I swear Mason is still an infant and Jane is like...2 LOL

I forget that kids still grow up when we don't see them every day.

I miss you by the way, how are things going?
