Me: "I love that you went with me today."
Big guy: "Why do you ruin it by saying stuff like that?"
Me: "OK, tell me this, what would the mom of your dreams say right now?"
Big guy: "I don't know, just that we went."
Me: "OK, going to the gym was cool."
Silence as we drove for a few minutes.
Me: "I really am glad you came with me today."
Big guy: "Mom, stop talking."
Uh, yeah, about that...see, the thing is, kid, I think that you do like it way deep down, so I'm gonna keep telling you I love being with you. So deal, darlin'.
I would totally like it way deep down if you "liked" my blog on facebook!!
