Yesterday, with both kids in day care, I decided to get a haircut and a manicure after my Japanese class. A little pink nail polish and a little trim around the ears later, I even had time to squeeze in a little shopping.
I was making dinner when Bailey came into the kitchen.
He looked in the vegetable bin for strawberries and finding none, he turned to me. He started to say something then stopped. He took my hand in his and turned it to get a view from every possible angle.
"That pink is so pretty on you, Mommy," he smiled up at me.
"Thanks, Bailey," I replied.
"You are the cutest Mommy!" he giggled before stealing a slice of carrot and another little piece of my heart.
