Have I ever mentioned that Kade calls me "Sweet Mommy?" Well, he does. Not all the time, mostly just when I am tucking him in at night. It goes something like this:
I walk in his room to find him already in bed, under his covers. I give him a thousand kisses and hugs. I tell him how much I love him and we talk a little about the next day's events. Then we pray. I turn to walk out the door and without fail he says, "good-night Sweet Mommy." I turn around to see him smiling because he knows how much I love it when he says that. I run back over to him and give him more kisses and one more hug. I reply, "good-night Prince Kade." Then I leave his room.
He is turning 7 (SEVEN!!) next week... Wow, even typing it is unbelievable. It seems like just yesterday he was hanging out with me like this:
Just the other morning when I was waking him up for school, I crawled beside him; he smiled and wrapped his arms around me. I BEGGED him not to turn 7. He told me he "couldn't stop growing," but that he promised to live "close" to me forever so that he could always "take care" of me....
Does anyone know a good lawyer? I need to get something written up so we can make this a legal commitment.... ;)
