“I want to make my lunch for school today mom!”
How could I refuse. She carefully chose each component : Vegan pumpkin and chocolate muffin and cranberries for snacks, yogurt for dessert, the last of the farmer’s market heirloom cherry tomatoes and farm fresh egg salad sandwich for her main course.
“I want the bread you and dad made mom, not the store one.”
Music to my ears…
It was her first time peeling a hard-boiled egg. I thought for sure she would get tired of it quickly, but on she went. Little piece by little piece, poking her delicate fingers, but pushing on. She was about all done when she stopped and looked up at me…
“It’s like doing a puzzle backwards mom. Maybe we could play with puzzles tonight when I get home from school?”
These moments are why I became a mom. So simple, so honest, so filled with joy.
Wishing you a wonderful day.
