Today as I was putting my son to bed he looked at me and said;
“You know, when my friend Stuart gets home from school every day, he gets a cookie, but its OK I get something better than cookies, I get love.”
Of course I turned to him with all the love in the world and said “Oh my God, you are the cutest thing ever…here, have a cookie.”
After inhaling the aforementioned cookie (of which I think he totally manipulated me into giving him, kudos to him) he said; “You know I think Stuart probably gets love as well, he just doesn’t know it. The love in his house is too quiet.”
A friend asked where I found such an adorable child as she was thinking of getting one of her own. (Apparently he had been hiding in my ovaries for decades and I never knew it. How lucky am I?)
The lesson here from a 7 year old politician-in-the-making is that you should never let your love go quiet.
