The best part of my day is putting Boo to bed. This is my time with her. The time of day that I will not let anyone else interfere. I am steadfast that no one puts her to bed other than me when I am home. This moment is when she hugs me with her whole body as I carry her to her room. She hugs me around the neck with her legs around my waist. Lays her head on my shoulder and snuggles close.
I lay her down on her bed and say I love you. She replies 'ank you'. While I wish for some day to hear her tell me she loves me, 'ank you' is enough for now. I lay her down, cover her with her blanket and slowly walk out of the room.
I say one more time, Night, night Boo I love you and hear, 'ank you' one last time. My heart swells with love all the field trip pain melts away. I don't care that she is delayed, just that she is sleeping in her bed. I don't care that she cannot say or understand I love you. Because I know that while she might not understand it, she knows that she is loved.
That is how I finished the sentence this Friday, the best part of my day is....
Tell me, what is the best part of yours?
