she melts my heart...


I mean seriously, doesn't that face melt your heart too?

Today she threw my phone into the toilet. She totally did it on purpose and to spite me because I was trying to take it away from her. I just get tired of her calling random people in my phone book, most of whom I never talk to or haven't heard from in years. So after asking her nicely to hand it over, and not getting any cooperation on her end, I decided to take matters into my own hands. But she being quicker than I, escaped into the bathroom, and maliciously threw my phone into the toilet, right before my very eyes. Oh, I was so mad. I mean I was livid. I yelled at her. "NO!...WHY WOULD YOU THROW MOMMY'S PHONE INTO THE YUCKY POO POO TOILET?...NO, NO!" Her mouth began to pucker, her lips began to quiver - you know that look right at the onset of a major break down? Then she did something sort of unexpected. She immediately threw her arms tight around my legs and said (in the most irresistable little voice), "Oh, momma". But I resisted. In fact I was still so mad I had to leave the room...and I left her in it. She immediately burst into tears and ran after me. I turned around to see her arms outstretched to me, and desperately sobbing "wub you, momma...wub you...wub you...wub you, momma".
The very first time to tell me she loved me, without any persuasion on my part...

And that, my friends, is the story...of how she melted my heart.

Oh, those are the best/worst moments! When they melt your heart when you want to be mad! She's darling. I think I'll remember the first time Gretta said she loved me (without coaxing) forever! It's priceless!

It's amazing how sweet they can be one minute and how frustrating they can be the next!

We are thinking about moving to Arizona...but I have some questions/concerns I am wondering if you can help me with. Can you email me? ashoach@gmail.com

That just brings tears to my eyes. She is such a cutie even though she upset you. It is so hard to be mad when they can be the sweetest spirits ever!

Nic, I'm so glad you've realized so early what it took me a number of years to realize myself, that things are just things and they won't last; but, people are people and they last forever.

wub you! :-)

Laurel said...

Oh, my gosh! I wub her! Er, I mean love. :) I can imagine it has got to be the most amazing thing for such a sweet little person to say they love you. She is such a sweetheart.

How SWEET! She makes me want to stretch my arms through the computer screen and give her a great big hug! Ruby reminds me that sometimes we need to let things go, and remember what matters most - love.

Danielle said...

PS: I had a dream last night that I was visiting you guys in Arizona. How random, huh? Some creepy guy came to the door, and I fought him off to protect Ruby. Weird how our minds play tricks on us. lol.

Love to the Eaglestons.

So, I'm tearing up. For two reasons...

1- Alex and I have been in that sort of situation SEVERAL times, so I know how you must have felt.

2- I am so happy to hear that my little girl isn't the only one out there that acts like that!

She is precious!
