For he's Four...

Saturday, May 14, 2011

This little boy...
oh...what a handful he can be...

He's four...but he's going on fourteen...

The other day, er, was it week by now? He said to me..."Mom? You don't have to say you love me. You tell me that every single day. I'm NOT going to forget!"

So I tell him, "You know what Buddy? It's really nice to hear it, every single day. I know you won't forget, but it still makes your heart happy to hear it."

So, we chit chat about it, and we make a pact...I won't tell him I love him 100 times throughout the day (at least not in front of people...) and at nighttime, when we are winding down and's ok for me to say it.

Am I sticking to the pact?
I am being mindful of not saying it in front of too many people...Who knew 4 year olds embarrass so easily? we were cuddling before bedtime...
He says to me, 'Hey Mom? I love you." -

I know Buddy.
I know.

And as I watch you slumber...
I whisper it again and again and again and again.

Don't you ever forget it little man.

I love you ~

I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
as long as I'm living my baby you'll be.
