Guess How Much I Love You??
Ahhh yes....a favorite children's classic in our house! If you haven't read it (and you should if you haven't it), the baby rabbit (or, little nutbrown hare) is trying to tell his mom how much he loves her ... "as big as I am tall," "over the river," "as high as I can hop." But the mom keeps one-upping the baby. At the end, the baby says to the mom "I love you to the moon." The mommy replies "I love you to the moon, and back!" LOVE IT!!!
Well, Carter has come up with his own variations of this story. Its very sweet. Last night, while cuddling at bedtime, I'm drifting in and out of consciousness when he says - "Mommy, I love you bigger than the sun, bigger than the moon, bigger than the earth, bigger than all the buildings on the earth stacked up (I begin to melt), bigger than the biggest everything, even bigger than your butt!!" Moment over.
Out of the mouths of babes.......
