How Much He Loves Me



Josh always asks me how much I love him –“What number?” Sometimes I get lazy and I tell him that I love him so much, but that my love is so great that the number for how much I love him has not even been “invented” yet. Sometimes I’d play along and would recite a long, long, long litany of numbers, using indefinite and fictitious number words like gazillion, jillion, etc. He would then try to out-recite me...and on and on.

He saw the blog post that I did on his birthday and he saw the number that I wrote down on the last line saying how much I love him. He then found a piece of paper (which happened to be a sketch that my mom did of the two baby pumpkins we still have from Halloween!) and wrote numbers all over the page. He handed it to me and said, “There, Mommy. That’s how much I love you.”

I love how he even used a couple of hearts in place of zeroes in one of the numbers. Ah, my sweet, sweet boy!

Awwww! That is SO precious! My kids, when say "How much does your mama love you?" They put their arms into a circle and say 'like this- because it goes around and around an never stops." Because I love them forever.

You should put that paper in his baby book or file so that you keep it forever.

That just melts my cold heart. And the Tongginator and I often tell each other that we love each other "Google much." Maybe that's the name of his number.
