Not like I need reasons, but here's an example of why I love my kid so darn much. He snuggles up to me, on the couch and launches into "HI MOMMA HI!" which he repeats about ten times in succession. I laugh and say "hi" and "I love you". He looks right at me with those adorable blue eyes and says "I missed you too, mama".
Who cares if he gets it mixed up (he's been with me all day every day)...it's just cute.
