My Heart

"Mom, I'm sorry you're not feeling good."

"Thanks, Sweetheart. It's just a cold. I'll feel better soon. I love you."

"I love you more like more plus four-hundred-fifty."

"That's a lot, but I don't know if you can say you love me more than I love you."

"But, Mom I loved you before you even knew I was going to be here."

"I believe you."


  1. So sweet. Good thing you wrote it down so you can remember it when he's 13 and not so sweet. :)

  2. AWE!!!!! He needs to be bottled up this lover boy. So cute. Love everything he says.

  3. Oh my gosh, of all the posts I've read here:

    this one.

  4. Precious words for your wise son... Thanks so much for sharing these little bits from your life.

  5. Oh boy, that one gave me a lump in the throat. Sweet, sweet, Bob. Can you get that one recorded? You could play it back whenever you're feeling down. And then down the line, you could play it to passive-aggressively make him crazy when he's being all teenager-y and dramatic. TeenBob says "Mom, you're ruining my life!" and you hit some little keychain recorder thingamabob and it replays "I loved you before you even knew I was going to be here" in his little guy voice.

  6. That Bob. He made me miss my boy, who is 36 this week, again.
    Yes, a recording would be priceless. For so many reasons.

  8. Oh, that kid! THAT KID! Ohgoodlordinheavenabove.
