It Melts Away Because He Melts My Heart

Today I spent the better part of the day fighting with this little man. I was angry and frustrated I wanted to walk away and be alone. Call it day. It just got worse and worse too. Details are just not important though.

I got home. Passed the little dude off to D and jumped online. I checked my email and I had forgotten I sent myself this photo. I looked at his little face and melted. Naughty as he was being, I realized just like when I look back at photos of when he was a baby, this time will pass in the blink of an eye. I must cherish these moments with my baby. It's amazing what purity of heart from a toddler can do to change your mind.

He just told me he "woved me" and blew me a kiss. Had I still been frustrated I never would have accepted that sweet gift of pure, unconditional love.

6 JUICY LOVE NOTES:

I have those days too sometimes. What I love about my daughter is that she never goes to bed angry - and she won't let me to. Whatever happened during the day is already far away in her contented sleepy brain, and she just wants a cuddle and a kiss. Why do we, adults, lose this ability to forgive and forget? Hmm...

When my kids act like that I try to remember that we all have bad days.

And I hate being Mad Mommy!

I think the smile of a child could melt even the hardest of hearts...or make the worst of days seem wonderful. We are so lucky to be moms!!

That is so awesome that all it took was his photo to melt your heart!

I am having one of those days right now though and I don't think a photo will help...but I totally know what you are saying ;)

I think that's how little kids survive being little, they're so darn cute.
