Don’t over react. Just stay calm and smile. You can shout for joy AFTER you leave the school parking lot. Just don’t let him see you do it.
I tell my boys I love them every morning and every night before bed. For TWO Looooong years, my youngest (now 16) would pretend not to hear me, or roll his eyes. There isn’t a trick in the world that could coax him into saying it back. And hugs? Forget about it.
One week ago, the impossible happened. I dropped him off at school, said I love you like I always do and there it was. Mumbled, but there… “yeah, I love you too.” With that, he closed the door.
At least I waited until I was on the highway before I screamed.
And then Saturday he even let me hug him.
Wow.. every day he says I love you too.
Don’t make a big deal out of it, or he’ll go back into cool guy status.
I wonder if God ever feels that way. I mean, he sends me things every day just to show me he loves me. Do I tell him I love him back, or do I roll my eyes?
