love, part 2

Ben: Momma, I love you.
Me: I love you, too, baby.
Ben: Momma, I love you more than Ring Pops.
Me: Wow, that's a lot of love!!!
Ben: Yeah, it's the mostest love.

Ohhh, I love my boys!

Andy: Mom, if an angel shoots your heart with an arrow, you will fall in love.
Me: Really?
Andy: Yes.....I hope that doesn't happen to me.
Me: Why?
Andy: I would have too many girls to choose from.

A few minutes later...
Andy: If I fall in love I can't be tough anymore.
Me: Sure you can. You think Daddy's tough, right?
Andy: Who is Daddy in love with?
Me: Well, me! That's why we are married.

Wow...deep thoughts on falling in love from my 4-year-old!

sometimes, they are sweet

My boys have been acting like...well, BOYS since we walked in the door today. After the third time Ben got hurt, I sent Andy to his room for some alone time. I explained that he wasn't trouble, but I wasn't listening to the fighting anymore! So off he went. A few minutes later, I heard Ben walk into Andy's room and say, "Andy, I miss you."
Ahhhhh....I really love those boys.

thank goodness for laptops!

I have been confined to my bed since Sunday...with pneumonia! It is no fun. And, being on day 3 of the quarantine, I am beginning to understand what my sister-in-law has felt like for the past few weeks. Granted, I do not feel like doing anything, but knowing that I couldn't, even if I wanted to, is miserable.
I am planning to return to school on Thursday, but I have been assured that it will be 2 to 3 WEEKS until I feel better. That is a long time. I had just gotten to a point where I could run 20 minutes on the treadmill (that is a LONG time for me to run, y'all). I know it's going to be a while before I get back up to that. Frustrating!
I talked to the doctor today and he said that I shouldn't be contagious anymore, so I did get to give my boys a small hug before bed tonight. That was the first hug I've given them since I put them to bed on Saturday. I miss being a part of my family!
But, if we had only the mac, I wouldn't be able to use the computer. So, again, thank goodness for my (PC) laptop!
