North, South, Black, White, 1, 0

Filed under “You just can’t make this stuff up…”

Tonight the two younger boys asked me to snuggle with them for a couple minutes after tucking them in. I started with my 2nd son, cuddling his little body into mine, burrowing my face into the top of his hair, inhaling all that is sweet.

In a whispered voice we had the following exchange:

I whispered: I love you.

2nd son: I love you too.

Me: I love you more.

2nd son: No, I love you more.

Me: No you don’t. Its not possible. How does it feel to have a mother that loves you so much?

2nd son: It feels… really good.

I snuggled with him a couple more minutes, kissed the top of his head and made my way to my youngest's room. I cuddled his little body into mine, burrowing my face into the top of his hair, as is evidently my ritual with them when we snuggle. And I started our whispered exchange that too is a ritual:

Me: I love you.

Bones: I love you too.

Me: I love you more.

Bones: I know.

Heh. Cracked me up.

I am LOL at this. So much so that I had to then read it out loud to my hubby. He also laughed audibly (since your comment just denied my abbreviation)

That cracked me up too. It's the kind of stuff my son says. It also reminded me of a pop up book he and I love called: I Love You This Much.

It the best when you can cuddle like that. I used to call my son cuddlebunny for the book, but he's grown up now, so only pumpkin will do.

I want him to stay little just a wee bit longer.

It's posts like these that make me wish I had kids that could talk.

(I consider the puppies my kids, but they can't talk).
