Moms shouldn't have favorites

As I mentioned the other day, I've been walking on the treadmill most days. G thinks this is strictly a weight loss plan and apparently has given this some thought. As she hugged me yesterday, she said, "You're going to look a lot different when you're thin."

I was rather shocked. "G!"

With a sweet smile, she responded, "I'm just sayin'." :shrug:

Later that same day, I was watching a few minutes of a talk show and the host was asking the guests if they worried they turn into their abusive mother. (okay...whatever.) A overheard and said, "I think it'd be good if I was a mom just like you."

Seriously....that's the nicest thing anyone's said to me in WEEKS. I reached out to hug her, tears forming in my eyes and was met with, "Eww! Don't HUG me!"

That's okay, she's still my favorite. ;) At least for today....

We have to take compliments when we get them and that sounds like a great one! You are a great mom and the world would be a better place if more moms cared like you did! (It would also be a very funny place with lots of laughs!) :)

Those surprise comments from your children are so precious...remember them when you go thru some tough times w/ them! And usually when they 'say' they don't want hugs, they really do enjoy them and need them most when you might not be wanting to give them ironic!
