Reaching A Million

The Rooster and I sat together for a moment after we finished reading the bedtime stories.

“I will love you forever and ever and always, no matter what,” I told her.

The Rooster smiled and snuggled in.

“I will love YOU forever and ever no matter what too,” she said.

Then she added,
“I will love you until I'm a million years old and so tall that I break right through the roof of our house!”

What an absolutely wonderful little face. And personality to go with it.

You need to bottle that right there and keep it forever *sigh*

Little Miss Moi said...

Oh dear, you'd better start saving so you can repair the roof!

She looks a lot like you, doesn't she?

My son tells me I'm his favorite girl in the world. :)

Incidentally, my word verification is "undust". Undust the house. I need to do that.

My 12 year old son and I have played I love you more than since he could talk. When he reached the competitive age of 11 it turned into
a "sporting event." One night not to be one upped by me--he yelled "I loved you more before you even knew I was born." I let him score.
Thank you for the enjoyment your posts bring to my day!

Sigh. Or, at least until she's a teenager.

And this, ladies, is why we all had kids.

The ultimate question is how well will your love hold when footing the bill for a new roof, and mopping up the puddles on the floor caused by rain in your living room...

She's the spitting image of you.

Maddy said...

Lovely! We have the equivalent, but instead of 'a million' it's 'infinity' na, na, na, na, na!
Cheers

But, what will you do when she's a million and two? (or fifteen, whichever comes first)

Sooooooooo sweet.

P.S. Bryan says he will only stay married to me for 99 years. At year 100, I am on my own.

Jamie said...
