The "I Love You" Battle

Benjamin ran by me today, hugged me, then returned to running and yells, "I love you!"

I wasn't feeling well and said quietly, "I love you too."

He then came back... the challenge was on. He stood there with his game face on.... "I love you more."

I smiled, "I love you most."

He thought, tapping his chin like Pooh Bear, "I love you more than most!" He felt victorious.

I stood my ground.... time to talk like a four year old... "I love you mostest."

He looked perplexed, but then continued, "I love you more than mostest."

I realized the 'more' was always going to one up me there. So, I pulled out the be all end all... "I love you infinity."

He looked slightly defeated trying to come up with something.

Olivia steps in and whispers to him...... the light shines in his eyes, "I love you to infinity and beyond."

Game over!
