Something I don't want to forget...
"Bye boys, good luck on your game!"
Jacob yelled back first, "Bye Mom!" followed by Joseph, "Bye Mom, I love you Mom!"
I wondered for a minute if he had accidentally said I love you since he was standing next to a bunch of his friends... My heart swelled anyway.
Later that evening I brought it up when we were home.
"Joseph, did you mean to say 'I love you Mom' in front of all your friends this afternoon or did it just slip out? I hope they didn't tease you about it after I left."
"Why would I/should he be embarrassed about that? You're our Mom and we do love you."
