Mo inspired the name of this blog when he told me he loved me "better than boogers."
He recently picked up with the "I love you more thans" again.
First it was, "I love you more than mud."
And then he decided, "Mom, I love you more than Daddy loves you."
Not sure what gave him this idea. Or if it's a little bit of that male competitiveness coming out. So I tried to explain to him, "Honey, Daddy loves me very much. I know you love me, too. And that's just fine."
"Mom, I know Daddy loves you, too. I just love you more." He paused to think about it. "WAY more."
I laughed. "I know you love me a lot. I love you too. And Daddy loves both of us a lot."
He shook his head. He wasn't about to give in. In fact, I could tell he was getting frustrated by my attempts to change his mind.
Finally, he explained. "Mom, I love you thirteen hundred eleventeen million." He paused to make sure I was listening. "Daddy only loves you six."
Not sure how to respond to that, I decided to drop it.
