And then just like heart melts

Me: "Bella, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
(her standard answer used to be a teacher and a movie star, but I actually think the whole modeling ordeal has changed that a little:)
Bella: (non-nonchalantly) "Umm, a mom!"
Me: "A mom? Anything else? You can be a Mom and anything else you'd like to be when you grow up."
Bella: "No, after college, I just want to be a normal Mom." (WHAT? WHAT? WHAT? At least she got the Motherhood after college drilled into her head:)
Me: (I'm perplexed) " Why do you want to be a Mom?"
Bella: "Because Moms take care of their kids and love them all the time. That's all I want to do!"
Me:" Bella am I a normal Mom?"
Bella: "Yeah, but you work online so sometimes your not normal"
Me: DUMBFOUNDED..scared to ask what that means. But before I had the chance she told me.
Bella: "But don't worry always love us!"
I always do! I guess I've set such a shining example of Motherhood that my daughters just want to do the same. Or else, I'm doing such a pissy job of it, she wants to show me how its done. How I love my girls!

1/2 hour later

Me: "Gabi, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
Gabs: "UMMMMM, ME want be a MOMMY!"
Me: "Why?"
Gabs: "Ummmm, BECAUSE! ( What she meant to say is because Bella said so)
Me: "Any other reason why?"
Gabs: " You a Mommy!"
Me: "Yes, I am. You can be anything you want to be baby"
Gabs: "You Great Mommy!"
Ah, I always knew she was my sunshine. She brightened my day so much, she will never know what those words meant to me today.
