We were getting ready to land at the airport after a rather long day of traveling and the Roc and I were holding hands and leaning our heads against each other when we had this little exchange:
The Roc: “Mommy is the best Mommy in the world. Rocco is Rocco.”
Big Pause while I realized what he just said.
Me: “Did you just say Mommy is the best Mommy in the world?”
The Roc: “Yes.”
Another big pause while a smile stretched across my face and my heart swelled.
The Roc: “I love you Mommy.”
I could feel my eyes pricking with tears.
Me: “I love you too buddy.”
Totally the sweetest words ever.
