Love You Forever

This book is in high rotation at the Yoy house.

I'm not sure how many of you have read it, but the first 43 times I read it, I cried.  I don't know if it was my post-pregnancy hormones, but I could not make it through this dang book.

I can finally read it and not get all emotional.  Maybe I have turned into a Mrs. Yoy-bot?

So Big E was sitting on one of the bar stools waiting for his breakfast.  I was standing right next to him making the Yoys some raisin toast.

Big E looked up at me, batted his ridiculously long eyelashes, and said with such seriousness:

Mom?

Oh boy, what was coming next.

Yes, baby?


He then proceeded to recite the song from Love You Forever:

I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
as long as I'm living,
my baby you'll be.

I literally had to turn away and compose myself.

I knew there was a reason I was keeping this kid around.
I dare you to read this and not get choked up.
