"I Love You as Big as the Planet"

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

I accidentally slipped to Karenna too early that I'd be going away to a conference soon.  She was not too happy.  She cried.

"Karenna, why are you so sad?  You will be at school most of the time while I'm gone anyway," I tried to convince her.

"Yeah," she cried, "but when I come home, you won't be there."

"But your Pop-Pop and Judoo go on trips all the time and you don't get all upset, do you?"

"Mommy, they are my grandparents, but you are my parent.  I love you as big as the whole earth, the whole planet.  I love them as big as the television."
