Heart Pops

Let's tell each other one thing that we love about the other person before we go to sleep.

Okay, Mama.

I'll go first. I love the way your whole face lights up when you smile.

Oh, Mama. That's sweet...And I love when you give me strawberries.



Where did I come from?

A wish on a star.

I'm happy you wished me.

Me too, baby. Thank you for being my wish.

Thank you for being my mom.



Yes,  baby?

I love you so much it makes my heart pop.

You make my heart pop, too.



Mama, can I...?




No, Mama. You have to give me a reason. "Because" isn't a reason.

It isn't a reason when you say "because." But I'm a mom. So that makes it a reason.

Well that isn't exactly fair.



Happy birthday, Mama. I'm going to hug you now. Because sometimes I just want to hug you because I love you so much. Okay?



And my heart pops just a little bit more.
