"Mommy friend"


Tonight as I laid down with Cole to put him to bed, he was still reading his book, talking to himself and I was just lying there, looking at the ceiling, thinking. Suddenly I realized that it was quiet so I looked over at him to find that he was staring at me with a cute smile on his face. We smiled at each other for long seconds; he was looking at me just as he looks in the picture above :)

And then he pointed to himself and said "friend?" [Lately he has been calling all kids "friends" because he loves to play with his friends!]
"Yes," I said. "You're my friend!"
Then he pointed to me and said "Friend? Mommy friend?"
"Yes! I'm your friend too!" I said.
He then looked at me some more with that loving smile and said "I luh you, mommy."

And I about died. This conversation happened more than once too! It happened like three times while I was lying there with him tonight. That little boy loves me. It makes me feel good. He knows I love him and he loves me too. It makes me feel like I'm a good mom :) Lying with him every night until he falls asleep is definitely time consuming but it is totally worth it and I will cherish these moments with him forever.


  1. Aww, this is the sweetest post ever. Cole is such a darling boy! How priceless. So glad you got it all down!

  2. That is so sweet! What a cute little guy!

  3. aww. you're such a good momma!

  4. Firstly, STUNNING picture!!! (You should enter some contest!!) Secondly, that is SO sweet! My son just started saying I love you (although it's still not completely audible,lol!) and he doesn't know what it means just yet. I CAN'T WAIT to hear him say it when he does!!!

  5. You are the best mom! It's so sweet when they'll say things like that by themselves with no prompting! He is so cute. PS- I have to lay with sophie to get her to sleep at night too. Sometimes it tests my patience but a lot of nights it's really sweet and I like our quiet time together too :)
