The Boy loves me. I know he does because I am his mummy and it's a natural reaction. I also know he does because of the way that he calls for me, asks for "uppies" (cuddles) and asks for "tisses". After a short absence (I'm talking about being in the other room!) his face lights up when he sees me.
In the last week or so, I've been asking The Boy a certain question which he refuses to verbally answer. He knows the question, he knows what it means and he does demonstrate the response. Hubby has been trying hard to get him to say the answer. I have heard him say it in a muffled manner and from afar but he won't say it to me.
Today he did. I asked him, not holding up much hope, but he just came out with it before he realised that he was saying it.
Today he said "lubb…" and then kissed me.
He said 'love mummy' for the first time.
My heart swelled with complete adoration and my eyes welled. I love my son so much.
