Early this morning, Brandon dutifully got out of bed and jumped into the shower. A minute or two later, G shuffled in to my room and took over Brandon’s empty spot in the bed. He was tired though and went straight back to sleep without missing a beat.
About an hour and a half later, his eyes opened, he put his arms around my neck and said, “I could do everything for you.” A big smile covered his face. Sometimes G’s statements require a little interpretation. Like when he first said “I finished than you”, it actually meant “I finished before you”. So I thought to myself, what does “I could do everything for you” mean? I quickly reviewed the usual sources – is this from a movie? is this something I said? I remembered that I had said, “I would do anything for you.” I say such things when I’m overwhelmed by how amazing my child is and I just blurt out sentimental tidbits. So, I’m thinking what he meant this morning when he said, “I could do everything for you” was really his way of saying he would do anything for me.
And that is a good way to wake up.
