While Arrine is playing Lego and I am doing dishes.

Arrine: You are my Mommy.

Me: Yes, Arrine. And you are my daughter.

Arrine: And Grandma Anne-Marie is our friend.

Me: [pause] Yes, she is our friend.

Arrine: And she loves us.

Me: [through tears] Yes, she loves us, Arrine.

And then I picked Arrine up and gave her a big hug and she hugged me back. Really tight. And then I explained why I was crying. Crying because I was happy.
