After dinner tonight, I had the kids get into their pajamas. While I was zipping Julia’s jammies, Alex came around behind me (I was sitting on the couch) and flopped onto my back, his arms around my shoulders. I slumped forward and told him to get off of me (in my mock-grumpy mommy voice).
He slithered off the couch and came around to hug me. "But you’re so nice and warm, Mommy!"
I hugged him to me…these little moments won’t last forever.
He continued: "Because you’re full of milk. Because you’re a mammal!"
