A conversation...

One day last week, I after I made Jacob's sandwich
I took my giant heart cookie cutter and cut his
sandwich in the shape of a heart. I didn't say anything
to him, I wanted it to be a surprise.

I waited all afternoon for him to say something,
anything about the sweet heart sandwich
I made for him.

He never said anything.

DAYS went by.

He still didn't say anything.

Finally, night before last, at supper, he remembered.

Jacob, 'Hey! One day my sandwich was shaped
like a heart!'
Me, (in all my wide-eyed innocence) 'You cut your
sandwich in the shape of a heart?'
Jacob, 'No! It was already like that!'
Me, 'Who could have made it in the shape of a heart??'
Jacob, (giggling) 'Ummm...'
Me, 'I bet it was those sandwich fairies! They do silly
things like cut sandwiches into shapes!'
Jacob, (giggling harder) 'Noooo, I don't think so!'
Me, (still completely baffled ;) Well, I wonder who
else would have cut a heart shape for you...'
Jacob, (after pondering for a moment, very serious now)
'Maybe it was God!!'

After my heart finished melting, I said, 'Well, God certainly
does love you that much.'

He smiled his little sweet smile like he was certain he
was right and began eating his supper again.

And all was right in my world. :)

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!! I bought special little snacks that my kids don't usually get and put them in their lunchboxes along with little "Just cuz I love you" notes. Riley acted like it was better than Christmas. That girl was BEAMING when she spoke of it. She told of how jealous her friends were, etc., etc.,etc. I felt so great!

Then Cam was like "All my friends said the note was totally lame.... but then when I pulled out the treat, I was like 'Not so lame anymore, huh?'" So even he enjoyed it even if he was almost too big for it.

I'm gonna try to remember to do stuff like that every couple of weeks. =0)

Great job, Mom! I'm glad he remembered to tell you that he liked it. =0)
