My favourite girl

“Mamma is my favourite girl”, said my four year old putting his arms around me.
“And you are my favourite boy”, I replied hugging him back. “You and your brother.”

I know I am not going to remain his favourite girl for two long. Someday, I am going to be edged out by other girls, and I am ready for that.
He hugs me today, but in a couple of months, he is going to get self-conscious and start pushing me away when I try.

Till then, let me savour the moment. And hope that I always remain his friend.

How beautiful :o) Makes you feel very special. My five year old still yells out, in front of his classmates, that he loves me. :o)

I agree, enjoy these precious moments! Cuddle n' snuggle, while you can, they grow up too fast~

My 8 y/o told me I'm not allowed to kiss him any more in public, but he still holds my hand. I better relish that for the day will come when he'll think he's too old for that. :(
