A Date to Remember

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!
