Last week as we were talking about things in the car (what is it about car rides that makes it so much easier to talk to one another?), Si gave me a surprising compliment.
"You are, like, the most mother-ish-ly person I know! We can't even go to the zoo without you talking to every little kid that goes by, saying 'oh, look how cute" and "hi sweety!'"
Yea, guilty as charged. M used to call me a kid magnet. I do love kids a lot. It's funny to hear it from your own kid, though, you know? Being a fretful mother, I checked with him to make sure he's ok with that.
I've been cherishing that comment. It's good to be a mom.
