I am happy to be his mom.

It is a known fact that if I sit down anywhere in my house, I won't be sitting there alone very long.  Because there will soon be a little Parker ready to visit. 

The kids were happily playing so I sat down in my beloved recliner and opened my laptop.  I was ready to sneak in a few minutes of internet time.  But, moments later, there was there was Antwan.

I love how he cuddles into me.  It is very sweet, despite the fact that it makes it harder for me to click the mouse. :)

I looked at him and, feeling sentimental, I asked him "Do you know how happy I am that I'm your mommy?"

He looked at me, thoughtfully, and said "42!"

I don't know what I thought he'd say, but that definitely wasn't it.  But, when you think about it, 42 is a pretty big number.  So, although, there is no way to accurately measure the love I feel for that boy; I suppose if I had to guess...42 seems pretty accurate. :)
