How I love Bella, let me count the ways…

I love my daughter when she tries to help me clean only to cause a bigger mess.

I love my daughter when she tries to dress herself and ends up in mismatched clothes.

I love her when she is trying to be loving and then decides it is funner to pinch mommy.

I love her when she smiles a pretty smile then it turns into an evil grin just before she carries out the newest plan to annoy her brothers.

I love her when she wants to look like a princess and then goes outside and is wrestling with the boys.

I love the way she rubs my cheeks to be sweet and then thinks it will be funny to poke me in the eye.

I love her when she tells me Mommy looks bootiful, and then laughs and says mommy has a fat butt.

I love her when she says mommy we can watch your show only to throw a fit 2 secons later and return to hers.

Yes no matter what, quirks, sweetness, meanness, amazingness, I love my daughter so much that words could not describe. She makes me want to pull my hair out and yet scoop her up and kiss her endlessly with every passing moment.

I love you Bella, you are truly my princess!
