Okay, Mommy

Okay, Mommy.

Next to "I love you," these have got to be the sweetest words I hear from my two tikesters.

I want you to tidy up after you are done, okay? Okay, Mommy.

Please stop when I tell you to stop, okay? Okay, Mommy.

You're going to sleep through the night tonight and stay in your bed until morning time, okay? Okay, Mommy.

Yes, I know that they will forget and that I will have to say the same thing over and over again before they actually internalize the message, but when they look at me with their innocent eyes and say those two words, I always feel the hope well up within me that they might just, this time, actually do what it is that they agreed to do.
