This morning, Brody woke up, padded out of his room. I was already in the living room, reading. He was holding his monkey and his yellow ball that he insisted on having in his bed with him.
B (at the top of the stairs): Hi mommy!
Me: Hi Brody! (climbing up the stairs to him)
B: Mommy, I love you sooo much!
Me: You do? That is so nice. I love you so much too! (picking him up)
B: I love daddy so much. I wanna hug a you. (we hug) That was a big squishy hug, mommy.
Me: Those are the best kind (walking into his room)
B: I wanna kiss. (He puts both hands on either side of my face) Mmmm (kissing me on the lips, with no drool for a change). That was a squishy kiss mommy!
Me: That was a squishy kiss. (changing his diaper now)
B: I like jeraffe and ellphants.
Me: I like them too.
