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:
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!
