I said yes.

I'm thinking about how I can say "I love you" every day to my kids in ways they'll understand, that are important to them, and that at the end of the day they'll know that I value them.

Today I said "I love you" to Lij by saying yes when he wanted me to push him on the swings. I didn't say yes right away. I actually said no, that I was prepared right now to go outside. I had just brought down the boys' laundry. But then I thought...I don't HAVE to go put the laundry in right this minute (and truth be told, I probably wouldn't have anyway). So I put my coat and shoes back on and went outside.

My thank you was being told about a thousand times "this is so much fun!" :)
