Sugar, Sugar

So me and my husband like each other. Kind of a lot - it's no secret. ;)
One of our "pet names" for each other is sugar. We rarely use the other person's actual name, it's always "I love you, Sugar" or "I'm so glad I get to be married to you, Sugar" or "Sugar, what's for dinner?"....
You get the idea.
Anyway, the other day I was in the kitchen making dinner and Bella was riffling through the pantry, as usual.  She found a bag of powdered sugar and a bag of brown sugar and was carrying them around the room.  
"What do you have, Bella?" I asked.
She looked at me, unsure of what to say.
"That's sugar!" I told her.
"Daddy!!!" she replied.
A little confused, I repeated, "Bella, that's sugar in those bags."
Bright eyed and excited, she shrieked, "Sugar, Daddy!"
Then I realized what was happening. She hears me call him sugar all the time, of course she thinks I'm talking about him now! 
I just smiled and laughed, so happy that she sees how happy her mommy and daddy are together. And we are so happy she is ours.

I just love these sweet (and funny) moments, I don't ever want to forget these precious things!

Pin It!

Cutie patootie!

My ex and I used to call each other Honey all the time. I guess his daughter (4 at the time) had heard it one too many times, because she said to me in a very aggravated voice "His NAME is TIM!"

We had a good little chuckle over that.
