I couldn't believe it!! The other night when I went out to the van for my nightly ritual of getting Baby Boy to sleep. I was so "surprised" by what I found in the handle to the driver door. I found a pretty pink rose that was from my rose bush stuck into the handle. I thought for sure that my husband finally was having a "spark" or something "romantic" in him. And so I grabbed the rose and came inside and said, " I sure hope that you are the one who put this in the van door" He just looked at me -- like he was guilty that it wasn't him. And it comes to find out that Smartie Pants decided to put the rose there. And I gave her a huge hug and said that "it had made my day all worth it!!"
To know that a child of mine cared so much and wanted to do something for me. It was great!! I'll never forget that. And I'll be sure to try and recall it when she's at her worst. I love these little gestures like this. It really makes me feel loved when they are moved to do something and not have to be "told" to do it.
So once I realized it wasn't my DH -- I said, " Next time there better be a dozen roses and a note that says you love me!!" -- Of course, I don't expect that to happen. Because as most men might be, he lacks the element of being a romantic. Aagh, sometime maybe. But I'll just "fantasize until then"
