I am part of a Bunco group that meets once a month. It is fun to get out and just have fun with other women for a couple of hours. Nathan and Elias get “boys night” when I go out.
This evening I was finishing up dinner dishes and some laundry folding before I left for Bunco. Nathan took Elias out to play baseball. When it was time for me to leave, I went to say goodbye to my boys. I gave them hugs and kisses, and then walked to the car. As I was getting into the car, I shouted across the lawn, “Love you!”
And Elias said “love you” back. He was just repeating. And I can’t wait until he says it unprompted. But I will treasure this first time he told me he loves me.
