A couple of hours ago we were leaving to go to Walmart. I made Caroline make one last trip to the potty to help us stay accident free. After she went I said “Good for you, you did it! I’m so proud.” She hugged me so tight and said “Mama, we are best friends!”
I realize that as her mother she won’t always see me as her best friend and really being a good mother means that at times she will really not like me. I will cherish it while it lasts and remember it when she’s 14 and has no desire for me to be her best friend.
