Or maybe he stores it in his toy box along with his favorite cars and balls.
This kid is full of mischief (and that is an understatement), but he is so full of love. Yesterday he had himself covered in neon green highlighter.
He has been repeating “I-Youuuu” (Read ‘I love you’) when he hears us tell him that.
But today is a day I didn’t want to forget.
At dusk, on the way home I reached back while driving to hold his hand. I thought he might be sleeping, he was so quiet.
He grabbed my hand and said “I-Youuu…” I don’t know if he fully understands what that statement means (I doubt it actually), but it was just so neat to hear him say it… all by himself.
I shut the music off, glanced back and in that moment my heart was so full.
I love love love being his mama. It’s times like this when I wish I could bottle this age up forever.
