What I also love are those moments when he first wakes up and wants to cuddle. I can hold him in my arms and be reminded of the days I rocked him to sleep each night. I comb my fingers through his blonde hair and whisper in his ear.
"I have a secret."
"What mommy?" he asks.
"I love you soooooo big!" I say.
The smile on his face reveals the dimple in his right cheek and it's enough to melt my heart.
And recently he's returning the favor. "Mommy."
"Um...I got a seee-kwet!"
"What is it?" I ask, as I lend my ear to him.
"I yuv you!"
Now my smile cannot be hidden.
I read a quote that reminds me it's okay to have secrets.
