More than coffee...

Gosh, I love being a mom. This a conversation I had yesterday:

My 3 yr old: I love you more than ice cream.

Me: I love you more than ice cream too.

My 5 yr old: Do you love him more than coffee?

Me: Yes. I love him more than coffee.

My 3 yr old: **GASP** YOU LOVE ME MORE THAN COFFEE?!?!?! *runs and hugs my waist and does not let go*

So this darling boy, this amazing, miraculous gift from God, who, along with his sisters, is one of the brightest lights of my life? The one that I hug and say I love a million times a day? It made his day to know that he ranks above coffee. Who knew. And now I have another way to tell my kids I love them.

This little boy on his wonderful Daddy's shoulders? I love him more than coffee.

    Thank you for reminding me of how fortunate all of us parents are...
