“I love you, K,” I whispered into her little ear and kissed her chubby cheek.
“I love you, mama,” she replied as she snuggled in for her afternoon nap, embracing her teddy bear Pookie which was originally given to me by Hubby when we first started dating 20 years ago. ”Do you love Pookie, too?”
“Yes, but I love you more.”
“Don’t tell Pookie that,” she whispered to me, as if sharing a great secret.
“I won’t if you won’t.”
She pulled Pookie away to face her and she said in all seriousness, “Pookie, Mommy said that she loves you but she loves me more.”
So much for secrets!
Who is Champuru?Aloha, I'm Donna, known everywhere on the Internet as "Champuru." I was born and raised in Hawaii. I'm a Christian. I'm married to my best friend of 18 years, we struggled with infertility and successfully conceived via IVF (and by the grace of God!) in 2008. I resigned from my coveted "secure" government job to be a work-at-home mom to my 3-year-old daughter. Using my degree in Information Technology and the skills obtained in the marketplace, I started my own business. Now, I work from home, taking clients on a part-time basis, working in my PJ's while the little one sleeps. Life isn't always easy, but it's all good.
