I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted what I have asked of him.
1 Samuel 1:27
Him: I was just thinking about what mommies do for kids.
Me: Oh, well like what?
Him: “Mommies , well, they give you a band aid if you get hurt. They give you a bath and keep you clean. Mommies read to you and if your sick they help you feel better.”
Him;: “ Well, mommies just do incredible things.”
My heart be still.
Does he even know how I cherish our love bantering?
Him: I love you.
Me: I love you more.
Him: No mommy, I love you more than the whole world and with my whole self.
Me: Ahh, but I love you more than the whole world and with my whole self…and I’m bigger.
Him: Awww, I shoulda thought of that!
Could he possibly understand that to cuddle on the sofa “wif “ him is a joy beyond comprehension?
My little boy is growing up so fast. I knew it would happen. I’ve done this before.
His “Bun-Bun” will be put away and he will no longer suck his thumb. He won’t need me to read his Bible stories at night – he will do it himself.
I know all too well that the cuddling will end and the eyes will start rolling when I profess my love.
For now though, I will stop what I’m doing to cuddle. I will read Bible stories to him and I will melt every time I see him sucking his thumb and loving on “Bun-Bun.”
