Duh. Of course I'm a mom but, I had one of those moments today; one of those moments where I had to stop and stare in awe and wonder at my daughter and then actually had to remind myself that she is my little girl and that I am her mommy! I looked back at her sweet little face conked out in her car seat, her strawberry blond hair going every direction, her pacifier hanging half out of her mouth and her little fingers clutching the satin edge of her blanket and my heart swelled with love. God, I can't believe you have entrusted her into my care. I can't believe I'm old enough to be someones mommy. I can't believe I gave birth to this little girl who is the spitting image of her Daddy. I can't believe she looks up to me and that I get to teach her right and wrong. Wow! What an honor and a responsibility!
I took my sister to the airport tonight. Yes, I am VERY sad that she is gone. She is such a helpful, entertaining and beautiful person inside and out and her company will be sorely missed! But..back to my story. I was in absolute mommy Heaven watching my daughter walk hand in hand with her auntie around the airport while I waited in line to check my sister's bag. Daisy waved at just about everyone going by and would shout out a cheery, "hi." She smiled so big any time someone acknowledged her and acted even sillier if they waved back. I was just soaking it all up and would have been happy to stand in line a long time just to watch my little girl and my youngest sister interacting together. I'm a Mom and it makes my heart soar!
My little gal was sick during most of my sister's visit and as a result she was a bit cranky unfortunately. A few hours before we were about to head to the airport today, my sister, Daisy and I were sitting on the couch talking when Daisy stood up and gave my sister a sweet little kiss and then proceeded to give her like twenty baby kisses for no apparent reason. It was as if she knew that auntie was leaving, she felt bad for being so grouchy and wanted to make it up. I swear it was the cutest thing I've ever seen and even I have never been given more than a single baby kiss. My sister and I were laughing so hard we both had tears in our eyes! I'm a Mom and I just can't get enough!
