"Love you to pieces."

So this happened: Christopher age 10


It was bedtime and we'd had a one on one evening because it's Papa Bear's bowling night.

Since there's only two days of school left I let him play outside until 7:45 then we went to run an errand and to Sonic (our new favorite place).

As I kissed him on the cheek he said, "Mom, I wish I could clone you." I asked, "Why?" He said, "So I can marry you when I'm an adult." Say it with me, "Awwww!"

So, there's a post going around on Facebook...

"WITHOUT ANY prompting, ask your child these questions and write down EXACTLY what they say. It is a great way to find out what they really think. When you re-post put your Child's age." - Facebook Rules

I decided to post Christopher's answers here and share with Facebook. Before his declaration of love to me, here's how he answered the questions:

For the record I am 5'5", I am 44 and I think I had Christopher when I was 35. Let's see he's 10, and he was born the day after my birthday. Somebody do the math. I don't know.

Anyway, I got this idea from Debbie McCommick on Facebook.
