Day 83: Beauty and the Garbage Truck

We were driving to the grocery store today when the following conversation took place:

Sweet P: Mommy, you're the prettiest girl in the whole wide world.

Me: Thank you, Sweetheart!

Little M: Mommy, you're the garbage truck in the whole wide world.

Me: (pause to digest that one), Thank you.

I'm not entirely sure what he meant by that. But he tells me almost every day that I look pretty or beautiful and he is OBSESSED with garbage trucks, so I decided it was most likely a compliment. At least I took it as one.

And that was today's Joyful Moment.

I love my kids. I love their different personalities. I love seeing the way they process the world. And I love how funny they are. I love it all.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments brought to you by either a garbage truck, or a really cute and funny child! Or, if you're lucky enough, both.

If he loves garbage trucks, then I'm sure it was the highest compliment he could think of! And maybe he's also recognizing that his mom does a great job of hauling away the garbage in his life to make things nicer for him.

That's super cute. I think it's so sweet that they tell you how beautiful you are.

My kids tell me the same thing...and I just go with that. Wish I could see myself through their eyes somedays. My Joy for yesterday was being able to know for a fact that I have at least 3 months short term food storage and over six of long term....I'm going to conquer this if it kills me.
