Moments that make it all worth it

I love having a three year old.  For those of you who know my daughter who is three right now, she has forever changed our lives.  She has changed our bedtime routines, our morning rountines, our patience threshold, our ability to ignore loud batches of screaming and throwing fits, and many many other things.  Then today she does things like this and I remember that really, I love having a three year old!

We all got in the car to go get older sister from school to take her to an ortho appointment.  I ran back inside to get a ballot and snack for the kids.  I grabbed the bag of MY favorite snacks:  York peppermint pretzel sandwiches dipped in chocolate.  I brought them out to the car and she said

"Mom, I knew I could count on you!"

really, just like that.  And I know I can count on her to continue to make me smile and make me a better person.  Isn't this fun?


  1. I contend that 3 year olds are the hardest and most joyous age. I love them.

    I knew I could count on you....priceless.

  2. I love it! Won't she be 4 in February? She is getting so big!
