I'm sorry for all of you moms out there, but it is now official!!!!!!!!!!
I have been "crowned" the best mother in the world. That's what Ellie has declared. She placed the lovely "crown" on my head and said, "Here, Mommy, this is for you, the Best Mommy in the World>" When I laughed, she said, "Because you carry the baby."
So, for the past 9 weeks, and all those days before, when I lugged that baby upstairs and down, everywhere she had to go, she was carried, I have received my reward, and I must say that NO ONE has ever made my day at the end of a crazy day any better than she did. (Yes, I know that was one of the longest run-on sentences in the world, but I'm tired.)
I might also add that, tonight at a Recreation Department ballgame, where I had gone to watch one of my Sunday School Students play, Ellie asked, "Mama, where did I find you?" I decided to play along, imagining that this would be one of those, "You rode on an airplane to come get me, and I rode on a train," stories. Well, she had another idea. She said, "I found you in the monster bushes, and you scared me."
But, just for now, I will enjoy my reign, and I will not be weary in well doing.
