Best Gift A Mommy Can Receive

Lexie gave me the best gift tonight and she doesn't even know it.
Let me set the stage first. I picked her up after her first day back to kindergarten following our trip to Texas for Thanksgiving (yet another post I owe.) My girl had a busy day because on Monday's they learn Chinese from Ms Jenny and then after school she has Drama with Ms. Stephanie. I was picking her up to take her to her Tae Kwon Do class with Grand Master Yi.....yes, Lexie is one busy 5 year old.
So she tells me she won a sticker in school today because she called out the longest "V" word.....veterinarian. I told her how proud I was of her then off she went to kick some a respectful, disciplined way, of course. After we got home tonight, we were snuggling down to read a book with Kaboodle chewing on her bone by the bed. Lexie noticed there was a little blood on it and she was worried about Boo. I told her I'd take care of her. She said....

L-"Mommy are you a Veterinarian?"

M- "Nope, I'm just a mommy but I'm sure I can take care of this. But honey when you grow up you can be a veterinarian or doctor or teacher or anything else you want."

L- "I just want to be your daughter when I grow up Mommy."

Oh this girl melts my heart. I am the luckiest mommy in the world because she is my daughter.
Best gift ever!!
