Alexander and I, after our bedtime stories.
"I was a baby. Now I'm a big boy. I'm not a baby anymore. But my brother is. And I'm not".
"That's right. You are a big boy now. But do you know what?"
"I loved you when you were a baby. I loved you so, so much. But I love you even more now. I love my big boy even more".
"Aww. Thanks Mummy. I love you to the moon".
"I love you to the moon and back".
We play this for a while, before I finally untangle myself from his delicious embrace. As I leave the room...
"Thank You so much"
"For what, Alexander?"
"For making me a person".
It's been my pleasure, little one.
