    Amazing, isn’t it?

  8. Tai says:

    I think it’s wonderful, but I’d like to add that as a grown up child (35 now) I love my mother as much or more now because I KNOW my mother.
    As I child I loved her as a child…today I love her as an equal.
    Hopefully, that is something to look forward to. If that made any sense at all.

    I is jealus. Is Wee Niblet available for loan?

  11. Claire says:

    Yes, and it is also sweet when they grow up into strapping men. Then they love you still, not sweetly, but protectively. You will be amazed at how adorable morphed into manly.

    beautiful picture!

    Savour it ….it is so sweet….and astonishing an honour.

  14. Diana says:

    Yes. That is true. And doesn’t it make your eyes tear a bit to realize that? I’m trying hard to store up all those “I love you’s” myself.

    Nothing compares to a child’s love. Absolutely nothing. 🙂

  19. Jeannie says:

    Wait until he comes home drunk when he’s 26 and won’t go to bed until you’ve said you love him back and give him a hug. Now that’s when you know you’ve been a good mom

  20. Logophile says:

    Aaah yes, it’s true, and beautiful and you are truly blessed.

    And that’s exactly as it should be.

  22. Steve says:

  23. Whippersnapper says:

    Aaaaaaww. And yeah, ya gotta appreciate it, because by the time they hit five they’ve got you all figured out. And (well, in my case anyway) that’s just not a good thing.

  26. furiousBall says:
