It is a known fact that if I sit down anywhere in my house, I won’t be sitting there alone very long. Because there will soon be a little Parker ready to visit.
The kids were happily playing so I sat down in my beloved recliner and opened my laptop. I was ready to sneak in a few minutes of internet time. But, moments later, there was there was Antwan.
I love how he cuddles into me. It is very sweet, despite the fact that it makes it harder for me to click the mouse. 🙂
I looked at him and, feeling sentimental, I asked him “Do you know how happy I am that I’m your mommy?”
He looked at me, thoughtfully, and said “42!”
I don’t know what I thought he’d say, but that definitely wasn’t it. But, when you think about it, 42 is a pretty big number. So, although, there is no way to accurately measure the love I feel for that boy; I suppose if I had to guess…42 seems pretty accurate. 🙂
