Why life is SO worth living...

Shaye was putting on her pj's tonight and my heart just melted. The best thing I have ever done with my life is having these children. This was the conversation:

Mommy: Shaye, you are such a big girl!! How did you grow up so fast? I remember when Mommy had to dress you because you didn't know how and now look at you! Putting on your pj's all by yourself. I used to dress you and then snuggle with you and rock you to sleep. Do you remember that?
Shaye: Yep. I'm a big girl now. I can do it all by myself.

::pause:::

Shaye: ....but Mommy, you can still hold me when I'm all grown up.

That's when the tears welled up. :::sniffSNIFFsniff::::
