Things He Says: broken heart edition

Things He Says: broken heart edition

A few weeks ago when Robbie first announced his engagement we should have seen where this was going. He’s since been “engaged” to a host of neighborhood girls. One day recently he was playing with a neighbor girl named Kaela when I told him it was time to send friends home so we could have dinner. As soon as his friends were gone, he threw himself on the floor and howled “But I Looooooove Kaela!” as though I had forbidden their star crossed love. If that weren’t enough, he sulkily added “I love Kaela more than you.”


He recovered his good humor with some food and sleep and the next day we had an inside joke going. Every time we said goodbye he would say “I love you more than Kaela!”

That kid.

So yesterday we were in the car driving home…

Robbie: I love you. I love you more than Kaela.
Me: I love you more than ice cream.
Robbie: I love you more than trampolines.
Me: I love you more than Disneyland.
Robbie: {long pause} I love you……the same as Disneyland.
Me: {laughing} Gee thanks!
Robbie: No, I love you the same! I love Disneyland one hundred, I love you one hundred and I love daddy one hundred.

At least he’s honest.

      The funny part is that as soon as he said it, I thought of you.
