The Sweetest Thing

I love my family. I have a wonderful husband, 3 adorable and smart kids that usually are well behaved. (though we were asked to be a bit more quiet at the quiet pool today but they weren't doing anything bad; just playing Marco Polo)

My 4 year old has taken to calling me "Mama" this week. I don't know where it has come from. All my kids have called me Mommy or Mom. Never Mama. It just makes me melt. I don't know if it is because she's my last child or what, but it really is the sweetest thing hearing her cute voice call out "Mama". Perhaps I just am all too aware these days, as she is getting ready to enter Kindergarten this fall, that this precious time is fleeting.

I'd love to know what memories, recollections, quirks, words, etc. that you hold dear.


  1. Devon calls me "Mama" too! I love it!

  2. Its really sweet. She's reverted back mostly to Mommy lately but I cherish it when she calls me "mama"...
