The sweetness of a six year old


I did this layout quite sometime ago and had it hanging at the LSS where I work. But, all good things must come to an end, and today I took the layout down, to make room for a new one. Gotta have new layouts to go with the new products you know!
I brought the layout home with me tonight and layed it on the island in my scrapbook room. A few minutes later Tucker walked in and saw it laying there. As he kept walking through the room, with out missing a beat, he looked at me and said,
"Mom, what would you have done if I had been born ugly? You wouldn't be able to scrapbook if I was ugly".
I laughed to myself, and knew I would save this for a later conversation.
Tonight at bedtime, I explained to him that he was the cutest 6 year old I knew, but that even if he had been born with only 1 hand, or didn't have legs, he would still be the cutest 6 year old I knew, and that no matter what, Mama's always love their babies.
As I turned out his light, and was leaving his room, this is what I heard.
"Cow (he sleeps with Cow EVERY NIGHT) no matter what, even if your stuffing comes out or if your tail comes off, I'll always love you 'cuz papa's always love their babies".
Ah the sweetness of a 6 year old.
