A few days ago I picked up Youngest from school and she was acting very mysteriously.
"Mommy," she whispered. "I have to tell you a really big secret!"
"Ok," I said, as I leaned down next to her.
She grinned and pressed her little finger to her lips and let out a big "shhhhhhh." I nodded and made the same gesture. Satisfied she cupped her hand around my ear.
"I made you the most beautifulest flower pot for Mother's Day!" she whispered with a giggle. "And it even has a seed in it! Only we're not supposed to tell our Mommy's cause its a secret!"
I smiled at her and chided, "Weren't you supposed to keep it from me?"
She looked at me indignantly, "Yes but I can't keeps a secret from my Mommy!"
"You are absolutely right!" I said.
Happy, she clapped her hands and said, "Just don't tell anyone else that I told you OK? Cause its a secret!"
Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out there!
