Usually once I tuck my boys in bed, I lay by their side and chit chat about the day's happenings and various other things with both of them for a while. That is like one of my best times of the day. But one day, after I tucked them in bed, I just lay by their side and wasn't talking much. After like 10 minutes of silence, S suddenly said "Amma, Thank you for everything you do for me and my brother. Thank you for cooking our food, feeding us the same, bathing us, brushing our teeth, playing with us, reading us books, putting us to bed, cleaning the house and everything...I love you a lot, Amma...I love you more than anything in this world...From tomorrow onwards, I will be a very good boy, listen to you and help you so that you do not get tired everyday. I love you a lot, Amma."
Such statements coming from a three year old really moved my heart and I ended up having tears in my eyes. Sometimes, S can get really really sweet. Just hope he is this way as he grows up too...:-)
P.S. - For my memory, this happened like in the month of March 2012.
