On Nov 7, 2017 after we were back from park (also school before the park), while I was unlocking her from car seat, she said “mommy… mommy…” a bit curious of what she would say i simple reply “yes?” And when I reached her to get out from the car seat, she hugged me tight and said “I love you, mommy”. Awwww… such a sweet words and gesture.
She never said that before. Despite I told her millions of time that I love her and also asked her another millions time if she loves me. Hehe. She never really answer or I would say she never really understood the meaning of love. In Bahasa Indonesia “love” can mean “sayang”, She refers sayang to hug something tighter (usually her plush toy).
So that day, I was beyond happy. I still don’t know till today, what’s trigger her to say that. Did she just learn it at school? Did she missed me and just blurted it out that day? Did she just see other kids do that to their mom?
She is 3 years old and 10 months. I’ll lock that 3 seconds moment deep down in my heart and my mind. Forever.
I love you too my baby. To the moon and back, countless time. May Dear Lord shape you into the person that He wants you to be.
Oh btw, will you say “I love you, mommy” with warm soft kitty pur pur hug more often? I won’t get enough of that, I promise. And if one day you read this post and I am not around, we just as close as your knee to the floor. Pray baby. I am always in your heart.
Mommy loves you, SO MUCH.
Aku SAYANG, Olivia!
