A Family Ritual

"You melt my heart!" It's a line from the movie,  Hope Floats. 

The Boy and I have been saying it to each other since the movie first came out. He was much shorter back then. In fact, he was only about 2 years old when I first saw that movie.

Then along came this guy and he really melted my heart!

But of course, he does not say it back. Too mushy for him. He just rolls his eyes. And smiles. Or winks. It's okay, I know I melt his heart too!

When The Short Chic came along, we started telling her, "You melt my heart."

I expected her to repeat it when she learned to talk.

But she did not.

As with everything, she has her own way of doing things.

Here is how it goes now....

Mommy: "You Melt My Heart!"
The Short Chic: "You melt my fish!"
Mommy: "What does that mean?"
The Short Chic giggling: "I have no idea!"

This morning The Short Chic randomly told me that I melted her fish. It melted my heart! If your family has a ritual that is cute and fun, please feel free to share! I hope each of you have a great day!
