Eli and I were squished into a chair, him past his bedtime and loving the extra moments to stay up. Me, relishing that he still loves us and isn't ashamed of it in the slightest. It's these moments of parenting that make my heart sing. He's really growing up and you can almost watch it happen. I'm gonna miss that kid when he's grown and not with me everyday!
Me: You just keep trying to grow up and we just keep shooting you down!
Eli: One of these days you'll miss!
Then all three of us crack up.
