Put in check.....

Ya know......there is nothing in this world funnier than a child who does something that is so beautiful. I was playing with my daughter today and we were on the couch laughing and being goofy and as usual when my nails are in the in-between stages of "too short to clip, too long not to get dirty"...I began to nibble at them to clean them.

Now when my daughters mother and I were together, she used to really get on me about chewing my nails. She would reach up and smack my hand....still does when she catches me.

Well, anyway... I was chewing n the nail, trying to clean them and bam....my one year old reached up and smacked my hand...softly, gently and with love. She smiled at me and as I began to put my fingers back in my mouth she did it again. I was so delighted, even though I wasnt going to laugh adn reinforce to her that smacking is good. I was dying inside...it was soooooo funny. That she remembered her mother doing this to me was hilarious and adorable all at once. Each time I would put my hands to my mouth, she would slap at them and the last time, when I finally did lose it....she said..."No."

I scooped her up and hugged her and as I smiled at her gleefully, I said. "Okay...I love you!! Dont tell mommy!!"
