For Only a Day

posted by Momo Fali on June 5, 2010

My son was sitting on my lap yesterday afternoon when he reached up and cupped his hands around my face. He said, “I love you super much.”

I replied, “You mean so much. Now, why do you love me so much?”

He smiled a ridiculously ornery smile and said, “Because you are the best mommy in the world.”

Looking to see if he could defend this statement I prodded him, “But, why do you think I’m the best mommy in the world?”

He rolled his eyes and answered, “Duh. Because, it’s your birthday.”

    Happy birthday. So let me get this straight. I share your son's birthday and you share my husband's?

  • Hockeymandad

    Haha, at least he had a valid reason. Imagine how deflating it would have been if he said "because daddy told me to say that."

    Happy Birthday!
