Today Jackson said something to me that I say to him all the time. It was so sweet.
J: "Hey Mom, Guess what?"
J: "I love you, mom."
It seemed today was a day full of love from the kids, and the boys showered me with unprompted thanks and i love yous all day long. Very rewarding. It probably didn't hurt that I bought them toys and chips at Target and made cookies...aah, bribery. Gotta love it!
