I LOVE YOU THIIIIIIIIIIIIIS MUCH!!!

"Mama," says Chago on the way home from school yesterday.

"Yes, son?"

"I love you across the moon." [hear...heart...melting]

"Bubba, I love you across the stars."

"Well, I love you across the sun," he trumps.

"And I love you across the clouds," I say.

"But I love you across all the oceans," he says.

"Well, then I love you across all the deserts," I add.

"And I love you across all the forests and the jungles," he says.

"Mama?" calls Saia in between bites of string cheese.

"Yes, sweetheart?"

"Mama, I love you across the street."

[and there you go]

Wow. Um... how nice of her. I guess she just prefers to get to the point without all the theatrics. ;)

Uh-huh. Okay. But I know what this really means is that when she's about 11 I'm gonna start hearing a whole helluva lot of "I don't love you anymore, Mama"s. AGGHHHHHH!!!!
