Guess what...I love you!


"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 do the same thing except I always say "Hey", then I wait for them to say what, then I say "I love you." But they haven't caught on yet...Chelle
