Be My Baby
So The Boy asked me to tye his shoes. He likes my triple knots. (what can I say? I am one "knotty girl"....man, I.crack.my.self.up.)
I told him he was going to have to perfect his own triple knot.
He thought about it and said, "Maybe when I am 8."
You know I am a sucker. And, apparently so does he. I agree to 6 more months of triple knots.
Trying to take advantage of my generous nature (shocking), he replied, "How 'bout you do it until I am ten."
I quickly retorted, "Ten! Don't even talk about being ten. I need you to stay my baby as long as possible. "
He says, "Mom, I will always be your baby."
I gleefully exclaim, "Really?!" (Oh, this boy. He is SO sweet.)
He states, "Mom, you are like 26 years older than me. I will always be a baby compared to you."
Geez, kid, thanks. Thanks a lot.
