my heart is melting

i wonder what i've done to deserve my wonderful monsters.
lately, for the past several months miss monster has been saying, "thank you," anytime we/i do anything for her.
~thank you for making us dinner
~thank you for getting us ice cream
~thank you for letting me play with _____
~thank you for helping me

well tonight i had to clean the boy's room so i started w/ the baby monster's room.
went out to the hallway, did that and then started on mr. monster man's room.
when i was 1/2 way done they came upstairs to get ready for bed.
mr. monster man said, "wow! you're cleaning our rooms?"
i said, "i guess so since it will never get done otherwise."
and then miss monster said, "thank you mommy for starting on our rooms so they can get clean," and gave me a big hug.

they decided they were going to have a sleep over in mr. monster man's room.
i tucked them in and gave her a hug and kiss. she said, "you're the best mommy in the whole world. i'm so happy i have a mommy like you. i love you more than anything."
i just want to cry and i don't know. hold her. keep her this way because i am terrified of the teenage years and what is to come.
