My three year daughter grabbed my face and asked me,
"Mommy, do you love me everyday?"
"Yes, I love you everyday!"
"Everyday your WHOLE LIFE?!?"
"Everyday of my whole life."
I'm going to try and remember that she might need to hear those exact words when she's 12 or 15 or 17; when she's not 3 anymore, grabbing my face and asking me directly.
"I love you Lauryn. Everyday. My whole life."
Awwww, this makes me so sad. We're going to miss those days of little ones. We'll have to encourage each other as they get older and they no longer need that assurance. I'm sure if we have anything to do with it we will be telling them constantly. Love you girl and thanks for the post.
I'm addicted to saying "I love you." They'll be hearing it around here, whether they like it or not.
But I think you might just have stumbled across the next great children's book!
