I love you to pieces

23 Nov

Every night when I tuck Jade into bed, I tell her I love her.  I don’t always say, “I love you.”  Sometimes it’s, “I love you bigger than this house!”  Sometimes I tell her, “I love you a bushel and a peck.”

A couple of weeks ago, I tucked Jade into bed and said to her, “I love you to pieces!”  She objected.

“You can’t love me to pieces!” she said.

“No?”

“No,” she said, “but you can love me whole.”

Yep, I love that girl.

Tonight at bedtime she said to me, “I love you in pieces!”

I laughed and told her, “No, no, it’s: I love you to pieces.”

She giggled and said, “Okay!  I love you in two pieces.”

I tried to correct her again, but it only resulted in more hilarity.  She almost couldn’t settle down to sleep, she thought it was all so hilarious.

And so did I.

    In our house it’s “I love you big as the sky.” My daughter added, “plus a muffin” (which, obviously, makes it even bigger). It’s easier than pieces.😉 But the most recent game is a pointing one, “this is YOU, and this is ME,” she says, pointing us out. “No,” I say. “This is ME, and that is YOU” (also with the pointing). This joke lasts a very long time.

    Moments of love and hilarity like this one are some of the best times to be a mom.
