with love, mama spud


i love you
i love you
you're my little guy
you're my little
french-y fry

i love you
i love you
more than a king's crown
you're my little hash-y brown


i love you
i love you
i love you a lot
you're my little tater tot


These are love rhymes I say over and over lately. I made them up on the spot a few months ago, and they stuck.

Also, I framed these photos and hung them in a sweet little line in the hallway that leads to my bedroom. It was one of the best decorating decisions I've ever made. Because no matter what heavy thing might be weighing on my mind, I can't walk past this row of pictures without feeling like my heart will burst with gratitude. literally. burst.

Too cute! Your kids will always remember that and I bet your grandchildren will hear them too.

It's funny what comes out of a mom in love - my girls each have a fairy tale.

Oh, and LOVE the pics. Such sweet little smiles!
