Then after all that fun, we did a little shopping for a school project she has due this coming week. Afterwards I had planned to take her to Taco Bell but she really wanted cheese dip. We saw a little Mexican place near Michaels and headed there. She was so excited to be eating with just me and her. We ordered our drinks and of course cheese dip. I swear it is both of ours love language, it makes us so happy. We sat side by side and munched and laughed. It was really nice to get to focus just on her and listen to her stories and laugh about not having to share with anyone her cheese dip.
Then, we headed home for a much needed nap together. I love those moments, when I lay with her in my bed, both of us snuggled under our favorite blankets, and I get to see such peace come over her sleeping face. I hold her hand and we doze. Sweet sweet moments!
Today was much needed for both of us. Emma has really been emotional and a little stressed since her health hiccup, and I pray that a little extra TLC will help that stress. She really had a good day, and as she drifted off today, she was still talking about Princess Belle. Great memories made today for both of us, and I am grateful and proud to be the mom to such a sweet princess.
