The Good-Night Game

My kids never go to bed at night without hearing me tell them that I love them.  Unless they are spending the night somewhere, in which case they probably forget who the heck I am.  Lately we have turned it into a game, ala "I love you more than...." and we try to out-do each other with how much we love each other.

In the past few weeks I have learned that I am loved:

"....more than a hundred million little birds!"  (from my bird watching little girl)

"....more than two-thousand John Cena's!"  ( from my wrestling fanatic son)

"....more than a million puppies!"

" far as Pluto and back!"

"....more than a million fuzzy blankets!"

"....more than everything and EVERYTHING infinity!"

That sort of thing is nice to know.  It sticks around in your heart and you get to pull it out at times when you really need it.

All I can tell them is....I love you that much and more.
