just the facts

He was standing halfway across the playground with his new "friend", when I saw him turn around and point at me.  And then he said, "That's my mommy.  She loves me a lot.  We have a dog, her name is Lucy."

Then he turned back around and ran off for more super hero action with his new bud.

And I sat there, beaming.  Because that was it, his life summary in three sentences.  The things that are important & meaningful & factual to his four year old self.  And on the top of that list is that his mommy loves him.  a lot.

So grateful there is no question in his mind of how much his mama loves him.

Also, grateful to have made it higher on the list than Lucy.

Sorry Jon, don't take it personally... I'm sure you'll make the list next time  ;)
