and he turns 5 today.
The other night, while I was snuggling him at bed time he said this:
[boy] "Mom, I love you to the moon and back 10 times"
[me] "Thank you! I love you to the moon and back 100 times"
[boy] "Well, I love you to the moon and back 36 times"
[me] "Wow, that is far. That is very, very far."
I can't quite put into words who this boy is and what he means to me.
I can say that I love being his mom, that I am proud of him and that I am really blessed to have him.
Motherhood is so bittersweet.
