"Guess what...I love you!" is a game that I started doing when I was dating Theo. It was so fun to catch him off guard with a "guess what!" and after he would say "what?" I would say, "I love you!". It was especially funny when I really did have something to tell him and he would answer "you love me" after my "guess what?". I would say, "yeah, but that's not what I was going to say." I started to do this with Tobie when he was just a little baby and I continue it with Miriam. Tobie loves catching me off guard, especially if I am in a bad mood. Hearing him say "guess what, mommy" and then following up with a sweet "I love you" really melts my heart when I need it most. Miriam has just caught on to the game. Yesterday at work I looked at her and said "guess what", she shocked me by saying, "I yuh ooh, ma-ma". There is nothing sweeter than to hear your own child profess that they love you. Words can't sum up how much I love my children, and to hear them say they love me also is such a sweet blessing that I try to enjoy a much as I can everyday.
I am a SAHM of 5; Tobie, Miriam, Emma, Hannah and Charlotte. We live the military life through the Coast Guard. Semper Paratus! We love having the opportunity to explore this wonderful country of ours and make great new friends along the way.
