Samuel just wandered into the office and asked if he could “be with me”.  I muttered “sure” and kept working.  Then he climbed up in my lap and said “You didn’t know I couldn’t stop loving you?  Even if I tried and tried, I couldn’t make the love stop?”

He had my full attention now.

I  hugged my sweet boy and then he said “That’s because there’s a wire that goes from you to me, and the love goes through the wire and there’s no way to make the wire go away.”

I told him that might be the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.
