"I like your hair. Your hair's boootiful! And I like your eyes. And your lips and your teef."
The kid says stuff like this to me all the time. He also breaks out in a spontaneous, "I love you so much!" or an, "I miss you, Mom." every so often. It's moments like this that keep me going. Just when I think motherhood is too hard and I'm at the end of my rope, he says something so sweet, with such an angelic look on his face, that I think my heart will burst through my chest.
...Then about five minutes later, he'll jump on my head or hit me in the face, and the whole cycle starts over again.
But I still love him. :)
