Today I got the greatest early birthday gift a mother could hope for. Ben learned how to give kisses. Okay, so it is more of him just pressing his mouth against your cheek. It is drooly. It can be sticky. But they are the greatest kisses I have gotten. (Sorry, Pat;))
I know some day he won’t want to hang out with his mom. He won’t wiggle with excitement to be picked up. He won’t smile at the sight of me. He certainly won’t want to kiss me, or let me kiss and hug him. But today I get all of these things. Today my mere presence makes my little boy happy. Today I get to love on him all I want, and he loves it. Today I am so thankful for this moment of being a mommy. I am thankful I get to experience this great love for my child, and I am thankful that he can share love back with me. I am so thankful to get to be Ben’s Mom.
