Last night, Braylon & I were discussing what zoo animal we would choose to keep as a pet in our backyard. I said, “how ’bout an anteater, so he could eat all the fire ants in the yard?!”. He replied in a most intelligent way,
“people dress up as ants. you know, some people dress up for Halloween as what they’re allergic to.”
I said, “well, that would be be pretty messy if Brady dressed up as cottage cheese!” I kept coming up w/silly allergic costumes till he stopped me,
“that’s not funny anymore.”
A minute later, he grabbed my hand tight into his, pulled it close to his pillow, quietly said, “I love you, mommy”, & fell asleep.
