Angel kisses

Just now I was on Ciara's bed with her, trying to get her to relax and take a nap.

We were snuggling when she started playing with my arm.

I have lots of moles and freckles on my arms. She ran her fingers over one of the larger ones and said "Mama, these are spots."

"Uh huh"

"I think that they're Angel kisses"

"What? Angel kisses? Where did you hear that Ciara?"

"Mei Ling told me"

"Oh. Well, I guess the angels must really love me then, huh?"

"What?"

"Because I have lots and lots of them...see?"

"Oh, yeah. Right. Because you're a Mommy."

I have no words.

So beautiful... thanks for sharing... my 11 year old just tells me all the time she wants to adopt kids because she doesn't want the stretch marks, they're too gross on my hips, they freak her out!!

love it!

that's what we call the freckles on my youngest nose because he was upset "that he's only one with spots all over his face"...

now the other boys want to know why the angels don't kiss them too.
