Today is a day that I will remember forever. It is a small, little moment but it brings tears to my eyes when I think about. Before I explain let me back up a moment...
When we were in China Nugget babbled a few words, but the only word we understood was mama. Now looking back I know that he was actually asking for his foster mom. Not long after we got home from China Nugget stopped saying the word completely.
A month or so ago Nugget started saying mama again. I could never definitely say that he was calling me mama because there were times he called Big Bear mama. When Nugget wanted to know where I was, or tried to get my attention he usually just said, "Ahhhhhh". I came to know that this was his word for me.
Until tonight. Nugget and I were upstairs changing after school. I quickly walked into another room ~ usually I make sure he knows that I am walking out of a room, but tonight I thought I'd be back before he missed me. Nope, all of a sudden I hear, "Mama!"
I hollered back to Nugget, so he knew that I was just in the next room. He came running to my arms saying, "Mama!"
A moment I NEVER want to forget!
