I was putting my daughter to bed tonight and below is the conversation that ensued.
Me: I love you so much and am so proud of you. You did such a terrific job at dance class today.
Daughter: Thanks. I love you too. I'm tired from all that dancing.
Me: You must be. You were a dancin' fool.
(silence for a few minutes)
Daughter: I love you mommy and am so proud of you.
Me: That's so sweet. Why are you proud of me?
Daughter: You are such a good mommy and such a sweet mommy.
Me: Oh, you are such a sweetheart and I love you so much.
It is conversations like these that assure me our daughter is being raised right.
