Katie: She's A Peach

I just checked on Katie and she quietly asked if I would sing her a song. I sang her 'You Are My Sunshine' and she stared up at me while I sang. When I finished, she said to me: "Every time you sing that to me I butter." At which point my eyes began to 'sweat' a little and she asked me why I was crying. I told her it was because she made me melt like butter. She said it was her favorite song I sing to her, and that it was OK, because she likes to melt when I sing it. :)

And on Saturday, my Mom had sent home a surprise breakfast that Katie knew how to set up. As soon as we got home, Katie wanted to get the breakfast ready for the next morning (my birthday). She cut up watermelon and strawberries and made a fruit salad (yes, I teach my kids how to use knives at a young age...its family tradition!) and labeled each cup with our names. At some point, as I was watching her, I said 'Katie, you are a magical creature' and she replied with 'I'm just making breakfast.' 'Exactly!' I said. 'You're stinkin' awesome.' And she looked at me without skipping a beat and said 'It's because I stinkin' love you.' And I melted like butter.

Oh my, I think my eyes just began to "sweat" a little.
