Why I love being a mom (part 2)

(Setting: 8 year-old girl and 11-year-old boy are at the kitchen table eating dinner. Mother puts one hand on each child's head and pets.)

MOTHER: You fill me up.

GIRL: What does that mean?

BOY: It means we fill her with happiness ... though I have no idea how that's possible.

Sometimes it is hard for the children to understand the unconditional love parents have for us. Maybe when we have children of our own we will understand
