"So Frequently we mistakenly believe that our children need more things, when in reality their silent pleadings are simply for more of our time."

My Baby......

I've called all my kid's "Baby", usually until the next baby came along. Which would explain why I still call Noah "Baby". Here's the conversation I had with Noah the other day.

Me: Whatcha doing, Baby?
Noah: Playing with my blocks.....You know, mom, I'm not a baby.
Me: I know, you're not a baby, but you'll always be my baby!
Noah: I know.
Me: I'll always call you "Baby".
Noah: I know.
Me: I'll even call you "Baby" when you're all grown up and have your own baby.
Noah: I know.
Me: You're ok with that?
Noah: Yeah, I like being your baby.
Me: I like you being my baby, too!
Then he gave me a big hug and a kiss and went back to building. I love those kind of moments!

I love the book Love You Forever. I remind my kids often that they are never to big to be my babies and they seem to like to hear it. Cute Noah!
