She Said...

Hubby asked who her best friend is.
She paused and thought.  Then...
"Mommy's my best friend," She said.
So I'm her Best Friend. That will change.  Perhaps today. Or tomorrow.  (Because, of course, I'm her parent.)
But for now, this type A Mom is reminded that the pile of laundry that I need to fold and put away, the floor I'm dying to vacuum and wash, the dessert I'd like to bake, the quilt I want to start, the backbends and splits I should work on, the cupboard that I should organize, the letter I need to write, the email that I should send....
Can Wait.
While I hang out with my Little Best Friend.
Deep breath.
Take Time for Important Things.
I remind myself.
