“Which do you think will be your favorite change?”
“My baby. He’sth vewry impowrtant, you know. And it’sth a big job to be his bwrothewr.”
Yes, yes. I agree. Which do you think will be the hardest change?”
“I think my baby again. It will be hawrd when you take cawre of him, and you can’t take cawre of me. I will twry to be indepen’ent, but I might have jealousth in my heawrt sometimesth.”
“That is all very true. Remember this though: I will always take care of you. You are right that you’ll have to share my time more, but you will never have to share my love. I have enough love for you and enough love for you baby brother. I will always take care of you. That’s my job as a mama.”
“Even when I’m a gwrom up? Even when I’m twelve?”
“Yes, yes. Even then.”
“It’ll be hawrd. But mostht wowrth it thingsth awre.”

“It’ll be hawrd. But mostht wowrth it thingsth awre.” Words of wisdom, Eli, words of wisdom!
Indeed! His little lisp holds many words of wisdom, much beyond his years.
My heart just melted!!!
I was a puddle of melt during this entire conversation. I kept having to remember to take notes and stay engaged and not completely melt…
