I was in the kitchen this afternoon when Honeybee asked me one of the most important questions of the day.
“Mommy, what’s for dinner?”
“Well, I replied “I’m still figuring that out.”
“Can we put meat into tortillas and make burritos?”
I smiled, “That’s a great idea, let’s do it.”
“Thank you Mommy! Today you are my favorite mommy.”
“I’m always your favorite Mommy.”
She looked up, “No, you’re not, my Enat is my favorite Mommy”.
“She was very special and I’m glad you love her.” (pause) “You know, it would be okay if we were both your favorites.”
“Well, today you are my favorite.”
“I feel so special,” and I hugged her close.
“You are special, but you can never be special-er than my Enat Mommy.”
“I know, I know”, and I gave her an extra squeeze.
I’m still thinking about it — two hours later.
