Yesterday, Ry climbed in to my lap and said “I love you so much.”
To which I replied, “I love you more than there are fishies in the sea…”
And he finished, “and higher than the moon.”
I’m not sure which book I got that out of.. I think it was Nicholas Sparks, Love at First Sight. It’s been a while since I read it (actually, it was on audio), but I think it was Jeremy Marsh’s mother who said that to him as a child.
We’ve had fun making our own variations on it… such as, over the summer… I love you more than there are mosquitos in the backyard (of which we have more than too many).
