I had a message on my front door the other night that said "Little one sleeping, don't ring bell, just come on in!" This was for the get-together I was having.
My oldest saw the paper sitting on the counter and said "Mom, we should keep this up all the time"
I responded "Yes, so all the ax murderers and crazy people can just walk right into our house without ringing the doorbell first..."
My oldest looked at me and just said "Oh, would you stop Mother." This was followed by some serious hand-on-hip attitude and eye rolling.
I just get so teary eye'd when she calls me "mother"
