Happiness is watching her learn new things, watching her run and skip with confidence, and when she sings to herself while taking her daily math test at night. Her favorite song lately is Culture Club’s Karma Chameleon. She loves Boy George.
But what I love most is her relationship with her brother. He is totally the apple of her eye.
Tonight, we (Nicholas and I) went over the girls in his class. I would name them and he would tell me if he liked them or not. After naming all the girls in first grade, he told me that he only like
me, his Mama. The only girl he likes is his Mama, no one else. Then he said, “Well, maybe, I like Kate. That is it, you and Kate.”
It was the sweeatest thing I’ve ever heard. Then he said, “You can put that on the internet.” Then is it was the funniest thing I’ve heard.
