this weekend at a rest stop along the way we were sharing lunch together. i looked across the table at my two adorable children and remembered what i read on jen's blog earlier that morning. i told liam of how jen talked of wanting to gobble her kids up, eating them whole because they were so delicious. not to make them disappear, but to take them inside of you because you can't stand how wonderful they are.
i told him i was feeling that way then. i looked over and saw my son's quizzical look. liam reminded me 'don't forget, they're concrete thinkers'. buck pipes up and say 'yep mom, and concrete is really hard to swallow.'
