“Sorry to interrupt…” she says as she skips into her brother’s room, two books in hand.
Were there ever a string of more beautiful words?
As I was reading a bed time story to my son, my daughter skipped into his room carrying two books and said,
“Sorry to interrupt, but look! Two Green Eggs and Ham books!”
There are lots of wonderful things a child can say to her mother. A few come to mind.
~ I love you ranks right up there
~ You make the best muffins, Mom is a recent favourite of mine (heard in my kitchen the other day as my daughter devoured her second, super healthy zucchini muffin (wink wink)
~ Can you play with me, Mom? This is a wonderful thing to hear assuming you’re not busy. However, given the rate of speed at which most families operate these days, slowing down enough to appreciate that phrase is a tough thing to do (but totally worth it to you and your little one if you can do it).
Before I became a mother, I never thought mundane courtesies from the lips of my babes could be such sweet music to my ears.
It’s like the reward for all my hard work, reminding my children to say “please”, “thank you”, “sorry”, “excuse me” and so on.
But I don’t think I’ve ever told them to say, “sorry to interrupt” when they need to interject something into a conversation.
It was so nice to hear. Such a small thing to make me so happy.
I have wonderful children. 🙂
