does your child give you "the look?"
me: i remember the first time you told me you loved me.
noah: you do?
me: yep! it was a thursday
noah: how old was i?
me: 4 days old.
noah: (laughs, sighs) mommy.
me: you did, you told me you loved me. i remember every detail.
noah: where were you?
me: at our old house in bass lake. i was sitting on the couch, holding you. i was looking at you, and thinking about how i loved you. then you looked at me, and i knew. you said it by the way you looked at me, "i love you!" and i looked at you, then said, "i know, i love you too!"
noah: i know what you mean, it was in the look. i know what look your talking about, the look.
me: yes, the look. You really know what look i'm talking about?
noah: yes, i really know! in the look i give you and the look you give me.
me: the i love you look.
noah: yes, that look.
me: just like the look your giving me now.
conversation ends in hugs, kisses, and more of the look!
i don't know what it is, but this boy has taken hold of my heart, and melted me.
he just looks at me and i know that i am loved. how sweet it is to be loved by noah.
tell me, does your child give you the look?
