Tomorrow you turn 3. I’ve been thinking about the year, my feelings and thoughts and had the letter I wanted to write to you drafted in my head to write – that is until bedtime happened. What happened during bedtime was hands down the best mommy-dylan moment of the year for me and erased any fears I had.
We were on our third and last book and reading together in your bed. A page in, you leaned over and kissed me on the cheek. You’re a very snuggly boy but you’re not an overly affectionate one so this was new. I said “thank you” and kissed you back. Two more pages and you did it again. I turned to you and said, “thank you sweetie, why are you giving me kisses?” And you replied, “because I love you mommy.”
It shouldn’t be too shocking but the next thing you said was, “are you crying mommy?”
