The sweet life

My life is sweet, and some moments are breathtaking.Tonight was one of them.

After bath, and book time, I was laying in bed with my children. Just before my oldest dozed off he told me”mom, I don’t want to become a big man. I just want to be a big boy.” To which I replied, “why, you don’t like big men?”. He said no, because if I become a big man, I wont be beside you anymore.” With tears in my eyes, I replied, “son, I will always be with you, even if you become a big man.”

This is why adore having sons and why just when I think they have stolen my heart, they seem at add more to it, to steal more away.

Oh my goodness, I find it kinda sad that he thought that! It's also very sweet. Remind of this comment when he's in highschool, haha!
