Mother's Love

So, my boys came home last night after day care and they were a mess. They were tired, hungry, and had chapped cheeks and lips. So, we feed them, bathed them, slathered them with Aquaphor and let them watch "Tinkerbell The Movie". They went to bed early with little argument. This morning we were up too early, but they had a great time building a Diego Resuce Submarine on top of me in bed. During lunch, Nolan "finished" first and, of course, wanted a piece of candy for doing a good job. Since he never does a good job, I said, "One more bite of apple and two bites of sandwich." The apple went down, but the bites of sandwich he shoved in his mouth and proceeded to gag. So, as Mother's do, I put my hand out and he spit some back into my hand. Luckily, it was too chewed up. Charming. He then looks up at me, smiles, and says, "Canny!" I shook my head and said, "You have to eat two bites of sandwich for candy." Now, if this had been Mason, I would have already thrown the half chewed sandwich out and he would have had to take a fresh bite, but now with the second child and cancer perspective, my hand was still there with the half chewed sandwich and, without missing a beat, Nolan leaned over inhaled the half chewed sandwich, chewed it completely, smiled and said, "CANNY!" A Mother's love......happy Saturday, Ang
