Tonight when I put him to bed he hung on to my face as I tried to pull away.
He had that look you see in the second picture.
The look that said…”So you still love me even after all this time? You haven’t changed your mind right? We still cool?”
He didn’t say that. Well, because he can’t quite talk yet.
But what he did say to me with his barely 2 year old eyes was more than he could ever muster with a few words strung together.
And so I did what his eyes were telling me to do.
Lay down on under his Cars blanket, let his head rest on the curve of my neck, and hum the melody to You Are My Sunshine until his eyes were fast asleep and his hair was stained with my tears.
