a compliment

I had the most amazing day. My day was amazing because it began with an amazing compliment, quite possibly the most amazing compliment I've ever received. It was so amazing mostly because of whose mouth it came from.

On the way to school my sweet Rachael (who by the way is now my favorite child until the next child matches her compliment) out of the blue said "Man, I want to be a mom just like you. I want to make my kids laugh as hard as you make us laugh."

Isn't that very very special?

That's awesome. Your girls are lucky to have such a great mom. :) I'm looking forward, in a few weeks when my baby is born, to finally getting the chance to "be a mom just like my mom."
