Photo: Mini & Me
It was a very cold day yesterday, but when we set out, my 3yo Mini-Me* refused to wear her favourite, warm, pink & black hat, choosing to wear just her coat hood instead.
Later that afternoon, we decided to spend some time at our favourite bookstore. As I unbuckled her carseat, I asked her if she wanted to wear her hat.
"Yes...", she said with a shiver. She looked up at me gratefully as I produced her beloved hat and slipped it on her head.
Mini gripped my hand as we started for the store. "Did you bring my hat for me just in case?"
"Yes, I did," I smiled down to my little sweetheart.
She smiled back. "I love you, Mommy. You're the greatest mommy in the whole wide world."
I hugged my little girl there between the cars, trying not to weep like a baby.
Happy Valentine's Day...
* not her real name... no, really...
