The other day, he came to me and said "mommy, I will always love you. No matter what happens or even if you get old and ugly, I will always think you are a cutie pie and a sweetheart and I will love you.............. even if you're mean."
When I said thank you and that I would always love him too, he started to walk away then came back and said "did I look real cute when I said all that mommy?"
I laughed and said "yes you looked cute but you shouldn't fish for compliments"
He just smiled and said "But I'm practicing mommy. I hafta look real cute so the girls in 8th gradel with think I'm a hottie."
