The Ultimate Compliment

As I was putting Lily to bed tonight, we went through her whole bedtime routine:  snack, bath, TV (one 30 minute show), book, prayers, hugs/kisses and bed.  Tonight as I finished up all the hugs and kisses, Lily looked at me and gave me the ULTIMATE compliment from a 4 year old:


“Mommy, I love you more than cupcakes!”

It melted my heart….and made me hungry.


  1. Awww! That’s so SWEET!

  2. Aww. So sweet. I love that when that happens. And now you have it written down!! I wrote some of the things my girls said while they were growing up,but I know I missed a lot.

  3. Comments like that make even all the bad/hard /I wanna pull all my hair out days… totally worth it!
    Too sweet!

  4. WOW!!! THAT is BIG time love… You must be some mommy… I am so jealous.

  5. Wow- that really means something! 🙂 I only use that phrase sparingly! 🙂 Just checked out your blog. So cute – I love your wit and creativity!
