Beautiful Day

Every morning I wake up to my Gavin alarm clock. (Him bursting into the room) That always triggers the morning ritual of him then climbing up on the bed and snuggling under the sheets with Justin and I. We talk and laugh and spend some one on one time with him before we all get up and get breakfast. This morning was no different. However, Gavin must have known I needed a pick me up this morning because after I drug myself out of bed I stopped to look in the mirror and pull my hair back. As I stood there messing with my bed head, Gavin looks up and me and says, "Are you looking at you? Your beautiful mom!" Tears start welling up in my eyes and I bent down and gave him a big hug...it's moments like those that make this whole motherhood seem a whole lot easier. It is shaping up to be a beautiful day!

Wow! How lucky are you. I wish I had a morning self esteem boaster. "Are you looking at you?" How cute is that?
