You are doing a great job at potty training, but you don't feel well today. And that, I'm afraid, led to a fairly grotesque accident this morning. But I love you anyway. I had to scrub you and shower you in the tub that ended up clogging up. But I love you anyway. I had to scour two bathrooms top to bottom due to your, er, um, potty trail... But I love you anyway. I had to mop up the leather reclining couch. (I won't say why.) But I love you anyway. I had to mop the kitchen floor a second time after you spilled your cup of sprite. But I love you anyway. I am currently washing your beloved Mickey mouse due to an unforgettable dunk in sissy's chocolate milk cup. But- can you guess?- Yes, I love you anyway. I love you when you are cute and dressed up and combed and ironed up, but I especially love you today. I love you today- messy and wild and unruly as you are. For it is today that you threw your grubby arms around my neck in the middle of your mess and said, "I love you mommy, you're the best!" I love you too, more than words could ever say.
P.s. it is with great love and affection that I tell you- I hope you have a son just like you someday!
