So sweet. Obviously it immediately went up. There's just something special about mom and dad posting something on the fridge, right? It's on display for us all to look at and it basically means "We're proud of what you did. It's special and so are you." It's easy to feel proud of your children when they're so young, for one thing, much of what they do for us stems from a pure heart.
Ashtyn can frustrate me--and then hand me a paper heart and I melt. She doesn't have to do anything extraordinary for me to adore her. The bonus to that is that at this stage in her life, I don't have to do anything extraordinary for her to adore me. She's not looking for more from me, she's not asking for anything. I rented a few Curious George movies from the library the other day and brought them home to her. Ashtyn's response? She lit up like a Christmas tree, and told me I was the "best mom in the whole live world." It's not just her paper heart that's refrigerator worthy to me. It's her real heart.
