Best present ~ever~ for my birthday (children mentioned)

So I'm sitting here in the office in Boston. It's well after 5pm, closer to 6pm, and I'm still working. I'm in a conference room full of men working away on laptops and my cell phone rings. I pick up and it's my 3 year old, Ella. She sings "happy birthday" to me from beginning to end, with no mistakes. Then my 2 year old slurs out "happy birthday mommy" in her toddler-speak. Grandma takes the phone and says "happy birthday!" and hangs up.

Oh. My. God.

I'm sitting here with my eyes brimming with tears.

i. miss. them.

That’s So Sweet, my favorite gifts are the ones my son gives me, like the little scribbles on a piece of paper of our Family, or he'll give me his favorite toy, and hearing his sweet little voice saying "Happy Birthday Mommy", Warms my heart thinking about it.

I hope you had an Absolutely Wonderful Birthday Nancy, you deserve it.

I'm late here, sorry! Happy birthday hun! I hope you and DH had a nice evening. I am so happy your MIL was sweet enough to have your girls call you. That would've melted me too. (hugs)
