How much do I love you?

Just a sweet conversation I had with Bria the other day:

Me: I love you so much, Bria.
B: {holding her arms out wide} Do you love me this much?
Me: Even more than that.
B: Do you love me as much as a house?
Me: Even more than that.
B: Do you love me as much as a swimming pool?
Me: Even more than that.
B: As much as the beach?
Me: Even more than that.
B: As much as the sky?
Me: Even more than that.
B: {Eyes totally incredulous now} Mommy, do you love me as much as a giraffe's neck?
Me: {laughing} Yes, Bria. I love you as much as a giraffe's neck.

  1. How cute! I really don't think our children know the extent to which we can love them!! It is amazing. I NEVER imagined that I could ever love like this. It is something I have never felt and I love the feeling. I just hope that they know how much we do love them, because it is soo important.
    And no Lara, I don't mind if you blog about that as well.
    Love you

  6. How sweet is that! My boys and I always say that we love each other 365. It's neat to hear other families with similar tales.

  7. reminds me of a favorite well-worn book in my house - it so wonderful to have such conversations with children - I think sometimes those kinds of conversations are one of life's treasures

  11. I love that a giraffe's neck is apparently about the hugest thing there is in the universe. Very cute. But I think I like the s-wordest, big bully head mommy post better. That's still making me laugh!

  12. I remember as a kid trying to figure out how much my parents loved me. I held out my arms as wide as I could and realized that my hands were almost touching behind my back. Then I started swinging my arms back and forth clapping behind and in front to represent a circle. Never ending! My parents agreed that's how much they loved/love me!
