I am interrupting The August Break to tell this quick story.

Jane has started to say two things a lot. One thing is, "I love you Mommy" (or Daddy). This is, obviously, awesome.

The other thing is, "Why?." Like, constantly, why, why, why, why, why. I have actually said, "Because I said so." (None of us are far from our mothers when it comes to this parenting thing.)

So, this is now a common exchange:
"I love you Mommy."
"I love you too, honey."

Girl, there aren't enough hours in the day to tell you why.

I bet you didn't imagine anybody being witty enough to come up with a comment like that.

Amanda! Print this conversation out, frame it, and hang it in her room. I'm serious. So sweet & so true of a mom's heart.
