A simple smile from Rain warms my heart like hot coco with three huge marshmallows.
At 17 months, there's a lot of new things everyday that Rain does that just surprises me. This is why every parent is saying that this is the most amusing age for a child. But this morning, Rain did something new that just totally made my life!
I was carrying Rain, about to get ready to give her a bath when Richie told me to watch a cool video first from his phone. So while the video was loading, Rain suddenly kissed me on my left cheek. Then smiles. This was the first time she really kissed me with a loud smack and without me asking for it. So it really surprised me and made me smile from ear to ear. "She kissed me!!!" I squealed! And then with Rain still smiling, she again leaned forward close to my face and kissed me on my right cheek. Then again on the left. Then on the right. I was so happy! Richie and I were so suprised and laughed with fascination! But me, being the cry baby that I am, was laughing and crying buckets of joy at the same time :') This really warmed my heart like a big warm moist chocolate cake with creamy chocolate cream center sprinkled with more chocolate topped with ice cream and displayed on a chocolate pedestal in Disneyland!
I just wished we were able to capture the moment. Those sweet surprise kisses are really PRICELESS! Being a mom really is the best paying job in the world!!!
