Cherished Moments

We all have those wonderful moments with our children that we look forward to and cherish forever. The day they were born, first words, first steps, and especially the funny wonderful things they say. This morning I woke up and found myself in one of those moments I will definitely cherish forever. A couple of weeks back I won an apron in a giveaway they were doing over at Mommytalk. The apron arrived in the mail the other day and it is absolutely adorable. Vic happened to see it and got so excited. She called it her "cooking costume" and she immediately wanted to cook with me. Without really thinking about it I told her we would make pancakes in the morning because what we were cooking at the time she could not help with.

The next morning I woke up as usual and got everyone downstairs for breakfast. I had not slept well the night before and I was tired and kind of cranky. I remember thinking all I wanted to do was get the girls a quick breakfast and get me some coffee. As I was washing a bottle I hear Victoria say "Mommy, I am ready to make pancakes". She was standing there behind me holding her "cooking costume". My first thought was "aww crap me and my big mouth". I was in no mood to make pancakes. I looked into that sweet little face and could not help myself. I grabbed the pancake mix and tied that cute little apron around her waste. She climbed up on a chair next to me and we mixed, giggled and made the best batch of pancakes ever. When all was said and done she wrapped her arms around my waste and said "Mommy, thank you for making pancakes with me". I cried and thought what a wonderful moment. I never even made it to the coffee and we had such a wonderful morning.

Victoria loves that apron and those hot pads so much. She ended up wearing it the entire day which included our trip to Walmart. She got a couple of strange looks but several more smiles. I love everyone over at Mommytalk. If it was not for their awesome giveaway I might not have had this moment to cherish. I wish I had pictures to show for it but I was way too busy in the moment to stop and worry about that. The one here is one I took of her afterwards. I can only hope for so many more of these cherished moments with both of my girls.
