The trouble is when they do it at 4:30am. ;)
Something wrong here ... it's mother's day :)
>> it's mother's day
Now is not the right time to tell me that! Yesterday would have been acceptable, last week even better!
added: my calendar says May 14th, is it today in the UK only? I'll try that as an excuse anyway :)
A few years ago, when my son was about 4 or 5, we went to the local grocery store one evening. The bagger helped us out with our groceries. Just as we were entering the parking lot my son said to the bagger, "This is my dad. He's my best buddy," to which the bagger replied, "Yeah, my dad's my best buddy too."
Words cannot express how special that made me feel then and every time I think of it, which is often.
Then they turn 13 and shout I hate you all a lot :) lol

I have seven more years, let me enjoy it while I can. ;)
|Come here honey, tell Daddy that you love me some more. This way we can make up for when you turn 13. |
I aqree, when my 4yo says "I love you" it feels great!
The other day in the car while taking my 2yo (Amy) and 4yo (Kate) to school Amy said 'Kate ben ling' (Kate is a monkey). Now, it took Kate a few seconds to answer (because Amy said it in Thai and Kate wanted me to understand her reply)...so, trying to pick the correct words in English, but not having the complete vocabulary yet (her Thai is better than her English) she said..."I'm not a zoo, I'm a people". I know that she was trying to say "I'm not an animal, I'm a person" but she tried so hard to get the correct words.
I just love it. Makes me smile every time I think of her reply.
(I know, it's just a daddy thing.)
I'll see you your early morn precious heart tug and raise you an "I love you Poppa", gently whispered as she took my arm and I walked my now grown baby down the aisle last night.

Oooh, aaah, Goose Bumps! :)
He, he, he, I'll raise you the walking down the aisle - with a grandson falling asleep in my arms and my youngest daughter (his mum) dozing on my shoulder.
Ain't life great!
I keep a B-Day card from my 17 year old daughter handy on my desk. She had written a very nice and long I love you message in it. When work gets to me I re-read it. Brings a smile everytime. When they get in the teenage years they drop a lot of that. It's hard letting go.
Funny how having kids changes you, I never thought it would, but it does.
