I Am A Princess

I had to share this sweet conversation I had with Caleb. Caleb, myself and NaNa(Matt's mom) were sitting at the table having lunch wednesday and talking about nothing in particular when Caleb made my day. The conversation went like this:

Caleb: I miss my buddies
Me: Who are your buddies
Caleb: Well Daddy is my big buddy
Me: oh
Caleb: Kelsey and Riley are my little buddies
Me: What am I?
Caleb: Mom, you are my princess (This was said with the sweetest smile on his face and followed with a big hug and kiss)

He knows how to melt my heart! Caleb is all boy and some days can be so frustrating b/c he has so much energy and really needs to be able to release it. Some days I don't have much patience with him and it seems like I am always correcting him. Then he goes and says something like this that makes all the bad days worth it :)

Caleb, You are such a joy to be around. You find enjoyment in small things. You are a wonderful cuddlier and I love feeling you crawl in bed and snuggle up to me. You are my personal little heater. I love it when you tell me that "I will always be your princess". You are so passionate about everything you do. You proudly stand up for your baby sister and hate to see her in trouble. You are sensitive and caring. I feel in love with you the moment I held you for the first time and have enjoyed being your mommy. I am glad that God chose me as your mommy! I can't wait to see what a fine man you grow up to be. I love you!!
