I love you more than...

Last night I was sitting on the couch in the family room when my youngest ( age 6.5) came over and crawled into my lap. Facing each other she put her head on my shoulder and we just hugged for a minute or two before she said:

Youngest: Mama?

Me: Yeah baby?

Y: I love you.

Me: I love you too, baby.

A minute or two of hugging commenced, then:

Y: I love you more than a chicken.

Me: awww...wait, what?

Y: (with a big ole silly grin on her face) Well, if we had a pet and it was a chicken, I'd love you more than the chicken!

She didn't let me respond to that - she just crawled off of my lap and ran laughing into the other room.

Yep, she's my kid. Crazy!

LOL!! Aw...kids are the best. Every day I look at mine, getting so big and I get sad. I don't want them to get big!! What can I say, I'm selfish. I love my babies.
