A Letter to my 18 Month Old Toddler

Dearest Boyeng,

You just don’t know how you made me the happiest mother in the whole wide world last night. Lying beside each other, I was telling you to sleep while I was trying to hug you but you keep on moving, and then you suddenly face me and said ‘KISS’ while my eyes were closed. Did you just say Kiss? All along I thought I was dreaming but you clearly said KISS, I tried to stop my joyful tears from falling and then we kissed, you turn your back and hug your pillow again. Those months of tucking you to bed with a kiss in your ears and a whisper of goodnight finally pay off.

I might have slept already but then I heard you calling me, mommy (in your own slang way it sounds like Mem Mi). As sleepy as I was I opened my eyes half-closed and then you said LOVE. We have been embracing, giving family hug now and then; we taught you that hugging is LOVE. In the middle of the night you woke up and said: mommy and love? At that moment I thank God again and again that I have you.

I was smiling all the day here at work when one officemate commented ‘you look so happy today!’ Now it finally sinks in, my 18 month old toddler finally told me those three words I have been longing to hear. KISS, LOVE and MOMMY.

How can I be sad? I have you! Thank you for making me happiest everyday.

I love you so much Boyeng!
Mommy

Yes Mare ko, all those sleepless exhausting nights will pay off once they start telling you words that you long to hear. She has great parents who teach her how to become a loving person. Congratulations Mare, I can feel your emotions. I get teary eyed when any of my kids tells me that I am the bestest mom, or I am her bestfriend ever.. Or I am the best cooker..
Take care..
