When Ace, my four year old, woke me up this morning (and I thought, once again, how nice it would be if I actually got out of bed before my kids) I asked him for a hug. Usually he is happy to respond, but today he let out an exasperated sigh and said, "Mom, you always want a hug."
I responded, "Of course, I do!"
He sighed again, "I'm not going to keep doing this EVERY time."
I said, "Why not? I always like to give you a hug."
Ace answered, "It's so embarrassing!" as he reluctantly gave me a hug.
A virtually perfect life.
