This morning the girls and I decided to head out for some shopping. I already had Chloe buckled in her car seat and was buckling Cassie in. Here's our conversation.
Cassie: Where did dada go?
Me: To work.
Cassie: I LOVE dada!!
Me: I love dada too.
Cassie: I love mama. I love YiYa. (Chloe's Chinese name is YiYu -- Cassie calls her YiYa) I love kitty. I love Butterscotch. (our new 'fake' pony)
Then she paused for second and said, I love God.
Me: (shocked) You love God?
Cassie: Yes mama, and I love Jesus too.
Me: (near tears and kissing her nose) I love you baby girl!
This week was long and very stressful for me -- just over tired, trying to get back into a routine after the holidays, etc, etc. This was the prefect ending to my week and a reminder that everyday is a new day and another chance to get it right. Hearing those words pass Cassie's lips helped me put everything back into perspective. And heartwarming too to hear 5 days before my baby girl has surgery. (more on that in the next post)
