There's nothing quite like a Mama's boy...said from a mom to three who had to wait until her 3rd to get such a boy. Just for the record, I completely adore all my boys. They are my world, but this particular boy not only knows how to wrap his mama completely around his little finger and melt her heart into a puddle, he chooses to do so on a regular basis (where my other boys think all the mushy stuff is for girls ;)).
Ever since he was small, Carson has always told us (Hoyte and I both) that he loved us. Then it changed to he loved us "1000 times." So to tease him, I joke around and ask, "Carson, how much do you love me? 1000 times?" and he'd just grin. Lately he'll answer "No! I love you 157, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 times." Then after a brief pause look at me and ask, "That's a lot, Mama, right?"
How could you not melt at that? sigh.
These are the moments I never want to forget.
