That’s right. I am a sucker for the sappy commercial. Especially when it relates to parenthood. Waterworks.
Last night D and I were watching TV and this Verizon commercial came on. Totally teared up. I probably would have teared up anyhow (come on, this is Stacey’s blog you are reading). But just a half hour before watching that commercial I was cuddling with my E as he was just falling asleep, moving his hair out of his eyes across his forehead, and wondering just how much longer he will ask me to stay and snuggle him. Another year? Maybe two? Surely he won’t be 10 and asking me to stay there until he drifts off to dreamland. I told him I loved him. In his half sleep he said, “love you too”. Told him I loved him more. With eyes closed, little hands gripping his tattered brown blanket he whispered, “love you more than that”.
Commercial of mom and boy came on a half hour later. And I tear up. I tell ya, those dang commercials will get me every time.
Love that boy so much and wish he would stay four just a little bit longer.
