I just have to tell this cute little story about my kiddo yesterday. She was a royal pain in the @** all day yesterday, so finally at 7:30 I decided it was just time to give her a bath and get her little booty in bed. She splashed me more than usual during bathtime (she knows I hate that) and wouldn't sit still for 3 seconds for me to lotion her chubbiness down. Then, as soon as she was all slick, I helped her stand up and she stepped forward, gave me a big hug, and said "I love you". I could've just melted into a big puddle right then! I was so frustrated with her all day, and so ready to get her into bed and out of my hair, and for her to just say that without me telling her to.......just goes to show you, kids can be the biggest trial and frustration in life, and then one little look, or one little "I love you", and everything changes. Parenting is funny that way. Your patience is pushed to the limit every day, but you still love the little stinkers more than anything.
