Right Now

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

Right now.

Oh my word.

Be still my heart.

And may the memory of those two simple words get me through her teenage years.

The end.


  1. my heart just exploded! I love that answer! (secretly I laughed out loud when you said your favorite part of the day is nap....ME TOO : ) ). You are an awesome mama!!!

  2. okay that is a teary moment. her favorite time is with you at bedtime. what a memories you are creating. the songs, the prayers, the conversations.
    allllll wonderful!

  3. Hey girl! This is so sweet. Bless her!!
