I love yous
I never really have been big on, "I love you." I didn't say it a lot growing up. Didn't really think it meant much anyways. But, now as a mom, it means more. I have recently made two conscious decisions regarding these words. 1) I try to say this often, and not just at the routine times (in parting and at night-night), but also unexpected moments. After a big tantrum. During dinner. Getting into the car. Just because. and 2) my parting words at night are always, "I love you forever." I intentionally choose this phrase. This is my attempt to teach Joseph that, though I may not always be with him, my love will.
