Last night it happened. It came out of nowhere and just shocked me beyond words.
As I was going to bed last night, I went into each of the boys’ rooms to check on them. As soon as I walked into Benjamin’s room, I could tell he needed a diaper change. (If you get my drift…)
So I woke him up. Changed him. And we just started to play with a few toys in his room. We were having a good time; he was laughing and very excited to have me all to himself! I knew it was reaching 11 pm, so I put Benjamin back into his crib. I rubbed his hair, put his blanket next to him and walked to the door. As I was about to leave, I turned to him and saw him looking right at me through the crib bars. I said, “I love you, Benjamin.”
And he said, “I wove you, Mama.”
Talk about your heart stopping.
Our first “I love you.” These are the moments in life you live for.
