Thomas and I were driving down the road chatting back and forth the other day on our way to meet Baby Samuel. The topic of conversation turned to a comment I had made to Joshua the other day over some random 'man-thing' that he had done for me. I looked up at him and said, 'Your my hero.' Thomas must have taken a mental note on this and as we cruised along, he asked me if Daddy was still my hero. I smiled and replied 'Yes, son, yes, he is.'

'Mommy, can I have a hero?'

'Of course you can.'

'Does it have to be a boy?'

'No, it doesn't have to be a boy.'

'My hero is Gracie. She is so nice and she plays with me.'

Yup. My heart swelled so big I thought it was gonna burst wide open. It's conversations like this that make me love my Mommy-ing job.

I realize this question has nothing to do with the point of your blog and will probably reveal just how much we are "out of the loop" with your family, but who is Baby Samuel?

Hehehe, Baby Samuel is the one-week-old-today baby of a dear friend of mine, Heather. We used to work together and now I can't leave her alone!
