Spontaneous Affection

Sammy will hug and kiss me goodbye in the morning before I leave for work, but other than that, he's not one for all that mushy stuff. I think I've only heard him say "I love you" a handful of times.

So I was surprised a few nights ago, when he spontaneously threw his arms around my neck and said "I love you." "I love you, too!" I said to him. "You're my favorite little boy in the whole world."

"I'm the BEST kind!" he replied.

Yes, you are, kid. Yes, you are.

That is so sweet. Unrequested "I love yous" are uncommon around here too.... That would melt my mommy heart!
