What I Love Most about You Right Now


Bubba

  • How quickly your body pops for a hug when you catch me watching you sing to yourself early in the morning
  • How easily you laugh when Daddy’s beard and mustache tickles your neck when he buries his face in it for a kiss
  • How you sing the “I Love You” Barney song to me when you sit on the potty

Daredevil 

  • How loud and passionately you sing the songs from the Alvin and the Chipmunks soundtrack after I’ve given you the headphones to keep the house quiet
  • How your outfits never match, but you’re perfectly okay with who you are and in love with how you look
  • How love songs make you cry

Princess

  • How you want to be a minister to teach other people about how much God loves us
  • How you take long, luxurious bubble baths like you worked a real job
  • How you’re faster and more athletic than the boys but humble enough not to rub it in their faces

My Babies

  • How nothing makes me happier than hearing you laugh together, seeing you smile, snuggling with you to watch cartoons, dancing in our pajamas, holding your hands, eating freeze pops and checking the colors of our tongues, or just plain watching you grow up to be the lovely, silly, funny, and sweet people you are
