Sweetness Saves You

My son…oh, my sweet little monster, how you’ve challenged me these past weeks. Your toddlerhood has not been easy on us lately.
And then? You show me just how sweet you can be, saving us both.
“I want some juice, Mommy.”
“That’s great, but is that how you ask?”
“Please have juice, Mommy?”
I tap my cheek, and you give me a sweet slobbery kiss.
“Yes. You may have some juice.”
“Thank you, Mommy!” with a beaming grin that’s just for me.
Sigh. šŸ™‚

    My 13 year old challenges me each and everyday, but the hug and kiss I get at the end the day makes it all okay. Not much difference between a toddler and a teenager when you think about it..
