Good night kiss (and shared sentiments)

When I kiss Mintsha good night
(She waits for it)
I tell her I’m the luckiest mommy in the world
(How did I ever get so lucky?)
I answer my question
(G-d just decided I should be lucky)
She rejoices in our good luck
(Thrilled that she is mine and I am hers)
And then I add:
(Because I play fair)
“I’m sure other mommies feel like they are the luckiest.”
Mintsha graciously agrees
(Because there’s always enough love and luck to go around).
