Just In Time for Mother's Day

This is Jude.

Jude has always been a daddy's girl.

I am generally okay with that.  Since Vivi has expressed a clear preference for our neighbor and Ellie seems to want to snuggle with me, it's only fair that my husband gets a little loving now and then too.  He's a great guy.

Today, however, Jude did something I never expected.  This morning, I ignored both Turtles in order to do some laundry.  They were entertaining themselves (translation: fighting over toys) so I let them have at it so I could serve the higher cause of providing my family with some clean underwear.  

By the time I was done, it was obvious that Jude needed a break from Ellie.  I sat down next to her on the living room rug and cracked open a book.  Before I began to read, Jude grabbed my hand and said, "Love you Mama."

I don't know if she really does love me or if she was just sick of her sister.  Both scenarios are plausible but it made my morning, nonetheless.


  1. This post made MY morning! (Partly bc I needed to hear that bit about ignoring fighting for the higher purpose of clean undies...excellent perspective...)

  2. I love the picture of Jude with the strainer on her head--perfect!

    This is a great post---glad everyone has clean undies, and you got to hear those three sweet words :)

    Happy Mother's Day to you!
