Phone Call from a Little Piece of Heaven on Earth

Steve (to me, on the other end of my office phone):  Would you like to talk to Samantha? 

(Would I like to talk to Samantha whilst toiling away at my desk at work, pushing papers and typing the prints right off my fingers?  Let me see...uhhh, yep!)

Samantha (taking the phone from her Daddy):  Hi, Mommy!!

Me (melting into a happy little puddle of Mommy-like goo):  Hi, baby!  How are you?

Samantha:  Good.

Me (already in posession of the correct answer to my question):  Where did you go with Daddy?

Samantha (not knowing the name for Starbucks):  Coffee shop!

Me:  What did you have at the coffee shop?

Samantha:  Cake.

Me (again, knowing the answer, as it is their once-a-week after-school ritual that she now asks for when he picks her up):  And what else?

Samantha (pronouncing each syllable deliberately, enunciating carefully):  Chocolate milk!

Me:  Yum!  How was school today?

Samantha:  Good.

Me:  I'll see you soon, honey.  I love you!

Samantha:  I love you too, Mommy.  Bye bye!

I don't know what I love more - the phone call with your cutie girl or her "date" with daddy. My girl loves her special daddy-daughter dates too! Whenever I ask her to do something fun with me, she says "No. With daddy" because they always do their special things. :)

Super sweet! I LOVE hearing JM's voice on the phone, even if it's not quite a conversation like you and Samantha yet, but he's getting there :-) I'd take a break from work for that, too :-)
