The possibilities are endless

So we're driving in the car and Jenna says to me, "Mom, do you know what I like about you?"

Immediately my mind starts to race about what my baby is about to say... the hours I've held her? the hugs and kisses? the fun things we do together? the endless nursing? the devotion? the patience?

What will she say?

I am literally tingling and say, "No, Jenna, what do you like about me?"

After an extremely awkward pause and deciphering a few sentences, I realize she's asked me, "Mom, do you know What I Like About You?"

...ah yes, the song What I Like About You...

... track 17 on the Jock Rock CD we've listened to continuously for a few weeks now.

I am humbled, disappointed... and no longer tingling.
