Secret code

A long time ago when Travis and I were still dating, I started this little thing where I would squeeze his hand, or pat his back, or bat my eyelashes three times. He knew that those three squeezes, pats, or bat of my eyelashes meant, I LOVE YOU. I started doing this same thing with Carter about a year ago. Bless his soul he would try to do it back but would just squeeze as hard as he could!  This morning, he climbed into our bed and pulled my arm around him. He put that soft little chubby hand in mine and I squeezed it three times. To my surprise, he squeezed back three times! I can't begin to explain to you the big smile it put on my face and the warmth in my heart.

Having boys I realize that when they are older they most likely will not want to say I love you to me in front of their buddies, or if I'm dropping them off at school. I secretly hope they will never be 'ashamed' of their momma, but come on we've all been there. You know, too cool to tell your parents that you really do love them. I'm just glad that we have a secret code to let each other know. There are some days I probably tell the boys I love them fifty times or more. I think they need to know that I really, really love them. So with the love holiday approaching this weekend, remember to love on those babies too!!!

Happy Friday my friends!
