Ben gave me a big hug this afternoon and told me I was the “best mom ever”! So I asked him why I’m the best. Here are his answers (yes, answers! I’m happy I’m recording these moments)

“You buy good groceries.” – What he must mean is that I buy sugary snacks like Fruit Gushers and let him choose his own sweet snacks when he comes with me.

“You have nice necklaces.” – I don’t know what this has to do with being “the best mom ever” but that was a nice compliment!

“I like the sweater you’re wearing.” – Again, nice compliment. I’ll take it!

“You give me lots of hugs and kisses.” – It’s true. I do?

“You let me play MineCraft.” – I do. I’m not letting him play it as much as I used to, and I’m still the “best mom ever”.

“You make me pancakes and tuna sandwiches.” – His two favourite meals these days!

“You read me stories at bedtime.” – I wouldn’t change it for the world.

In return I told him why he was a great son:

“You give me lots of hugs and kisses.”

“You’re creative and full of energy.”

“You listen and help out around the house when daddy and I ask you to.”

“You eat my pancakes and tuna sandwiches.”

“You’re a sweetheart. Daddy and I are very lucky to have you in our lives.”

I could have this conversation with Ben every day!
