Apparently last night, Lilly and her mother got into a fight, and Lilly said "I don't want you; I want Lina." Aww. Though, as I told her mom today, that just begins to make up for all the "I want mommy!" I've had to deal with in the past...20 months? Wow.
We went up to visit their mom at work again, for lunch, and had lots of fun. She gave me the biggest ego boost ever, when she introduced our table to a coworker as "This is Patrick, my son, Lilly, my daughter, and Lina, my savior." I told her how much of a verbal affirmation person I am, and how that comment made my week.
It really did put me in a good mood. I have them tomorrow night, which I haven't done in awhile, too.
