This is the scene that I observed one Saturday, a few weeks ago. I was sitting at my
kitchen table, and I watched this scenario happen. Thankfully, I had my camera sitting
nearby.
She approached this table, seemingly to recognize it for the first time.
She stood and studied the pictures before her.

Suddenly her little face lit up, and she had instant recognition...



She reached up and grabbed the magic picture...



Her little face was beaming as she pointed and voiced the words...Mommy.




She turned and saw Papaw, and ran carrying the picture over to him.
To all of you mommys out there...you have no idea what an important
role you playing in these little one's lives.
May this serve as a reminder to you. Through all of the unthanked and seemingly unnoticed
events of your days...you are making a huge impact, and you are loved immeasureably.

So glad you had your camera.
You captured the play by play.
And you are right, mommy's play are the major role model for little ones.
Perfect words and the pictures to go with them.

Oh my goodness. What a powerful & precious moment! Thankfully you captured it, and a mere 1,000 words couldn't aptly convey that little one's recognition.

Aren't wee ones amazing?

Hugs,

What a little sweet heart your granddaughter is. I loved this post. Mother's have such a huge responsibility but it is moments like those that make it all worth while.
