Last night as we were going through our usual bedtime routine, I was struck by one of those moments. The ones where you look at your child and you are so overcome with such an intense bittersweet emotion that tears spring to your eyes and you just want to scoop them up and hold them so tight that time stands still and you remain forever captured in that one second.
But instead, I gave him a little kiss and said something silly~ "You know what? I could just eat you up with a spoon!" To which he responded with a wide eyed "AACKK!" Then he proclaimed, "I've got hopes and dreams you know!? And besides, if you do that, how will I ever grow up to be a Scientist?"
Yes indeed I could.... with a spoon.~Rhonda
