Ds was in such a loving mood tonight. First of all, he washed dishes without being asked, and we played Snakes and Ladders before bed and he didn’t get upset when he lost. Tucking him into bed was lovely as always, but later (admittedly when he was supposed to be asleep) he kept coming out with love notes for me. Little notes saying how much he loves me with pictures of us hugging or my reading him a story. He made sure they had xoxo’s on them as well as his own invented ‘A’ which stands for a snuggle. I’m not sure if it was a new stalling tactic or if he was just really feeling the love tonight. Well, I was feeling it that’s for sure. Then he requested that I make him a few notes. I wrote how happy I was that I was his mom, how he’s the best son in the world, that he was sweet and kind, and that I love him so much. You’ve should have seen him beam as he read them. He said that the notes made him so happy that he just wanted to laugh and laugh. My little guy. What a sweetie. I was so happy that I could cry. But there you go – I’m a girl.
