Every night when I put Lainey to bed I ask her
What was your favorite part of the day?
The answers tend to vary from favorite foods to seeing a friend to going to the park.
After I get her answer she asks me the same question.
I try not to always say
I really enjoyed nap time.
But some days that's all I can come up with.
Today was a big day. She went to school (which she thoroughly enjoys), she ate at "Paneras" (um, hello, BAGEL) with Lilang and she was able to sneak in a little playing time with her main squeeze, Jake.
So tonight, while cuddling in her big girl bed (after pottying, brushing, reading, praying, and singing) I said
So Lainey Loo, what was your favorite part of the day?
She looked me dead in the eyes and said
Oh my word.
Be still my heart.
And may the memory of those two simple words get me through her teenage years.
