A Real Conversation

As Brian carried Erik off to the truck today on their way to work and day care, I watched them descend the porch steps from where I stood in the middle of the open mud room door. Erik's blond head popped up over Brian's shoulder, bobbing up and down as he was carried away.

He smiled sweetly and said, "Bye, mama! Have fun!"

Surprised, I laughed and said, "I will! Bye, Skooby! I love you!"

He answered in his famous squeaky falsetto, "I love you, too!"

Nancy, it's just the begining of a life time of special interactions between you two. Funny how we cherish something like that, which most people just take for granted.:)
