Tender Moments

...are fleeting in this household

The other night I was snuggling with Isaac at bedtime. He loves to cozy up to Jeremiah or me as we lay in his bed "for one minute" upon his request. I was ready to leave his room and so I told him that I loved him. He rolled over to look me in the face as he stated, "I love everyone."

He looked so sweet in the dim light of the Spiderman night-light. "That's because you're a good kid."

"No, it's because I'm full of love!" he beamed.

The beginnings of tears started to well in my eyes. I looked at him cherishingly, realizing what a blessing he's been to me. "You are so special!" I told him.

It was quiet for a second and then Isaac thoughtfully proclaimed, "Your face looks like a car."

How cute. Sometimes they say the craziest things. It's a good thing that he was SO sweet right before.

I almost spit chocolate milk all over my keyboard! That is so funny!

And I would't say it's an SUV, or anything....

HOW FUNNY! I am always AMAZED at what comes out of that kid's mouth. You're so smart to write it down. You think you'll never forget it but you do. I agree with Kate...just a simple little V.W. bug or something like that.

Well if that doesn't melt your heart, I don't know what will! What a doll! I can only hope for a day where my son says my face looks like a car!
