Today has been a much better day despite being a busy laundry, childcare, clean-the-house day. Just as a side-note, the man claims he just said he threw the kids over, but really had someone watching them. The police haven't found them yet, but here's hoping that is the truth.
I just had to write today, because there was a wonderful Mommy Moment that happened. Gavin came and sat beside me today (I was sitting on the floor folding laundry) and gave me a big hug. I hugged him back and smiled at him. Very seriously, grabbing my cheeks so I would look right at him, he said, "Mama you're my bess fwen." I'm his best friend! It made me smile and thank the Lord, again, that I am able to be a mom. *Click* I want that image in my memory for life.
I much prefer being called a best friend over being called a mean mama (Gavin's choice mean name) or a pooh-head (Josiah's choice mean name).
