I wanna drag you face across the floor...

     Tonight, like any other night, I am seated on HM's bed reading the chosen story book, and having our goodnight moments. I finish reading, and cram my big butt next to him on his toddler bed, laying with him for some extra cuddle time. We were sharing his ladybug pillow pet, and he was squeezing me extra tight making me smile.

     There we lay, and he says to me "Mom, I wanna drag your face across the floor." "WHAT?" I try not to yell. I pull my head out of his death grip around my neck and look at him puzzled. Now I don't know if it's because he sensed my dismay and is old enough (3 & 1/2) for a quick cover, or if this is what he meant all along....He proceeds to tell me " I wanna drag your face across the floor so you can never leave my room cuz I love you and you are my best buddy ever!" "sigh" is all that is heard from me. Then a "I love you too my little sugar bump." I proceed to tuck him in, give him a million more goodnight kisses and quietly exit his room.

     I don't know if it was the relief I from hearing his sweet words after his mean ones, or if I am just that much wrapped around his finger; but I can honestly say I didn't even question how the whole dragging my face across the floor fit in to loving me so much until I wrote this post. How funny. I gotta give him points (yet again) for originality. Well gotta go, gotta wash all that dust off my face...I haven't vacuumed in awhile!! :)

  1. Oh no! That's the kind of comment that can really stop your heart. I'm sure that you realize that he probably heard it on the television or from another child, thought it sounded cool, and decided to repeat it without realizing what it meant. Still, you probably thought about it for days. Hang in there and try to just see it as a funny story you get to tell and nothing else. :)
