Me, My Girl, and Some Cocoa

It was a chilly, fall-like morning, well, I know it is all relative, but it was chilly for us. I was enjoying a big cup of coffee and Addie had moved all of her Polly Pockets to the one spot where the sun was streaming in through the windows.


“Mama? Do you want to play with me? You can bring your coffee over here and be the Mom?”


“Hey, wait! When it is cold outside we should have some hot cocoa! Can you have your coffee and make me some hot cocoa? Please, Mama?”


Who can say no to that? And she “helped” make the cocoa with very specific instructions. “I need the Winnie-the-Pooh cup, Mama!” I have had this mug for over 10 years, 15 maybe? Wait. I may have had it in college… At any rate, it’s been around a long time. And I love that the girls like to use it. It is definitely a good hot cocoa mug.


It is also nice when there is only one girl around, so there is no fighting over the Pooh mug.


And no fighting over the camera either. I decided as long as it was all sunny and my girl was being sweet that the camera needed a little bit of love, too.


So the camera got some shooting time…


Addie got some Polly Pocket playing time with Mommy…


And Mommy got some warm fall sunshine, good coffee, and girl time with her favorite 4-year old.

Does it get any better than that? I don’t think so.

  1. Oh so cute. She is lovely. Glad you ladies had a great time. I am jealous of your definition of cold ;) LOL.

  4. Definitely a good time. I like having those moments with my kids too where it is just one of them and me. Good bonding times. :)

    Oh yes, it was 63 degrees in our house last night/this morning. Heater not working…not good for when it is getting cold here.
