My child has started to sneak in close to me and whisper, 'I love youuuuuu." In a sing songy way as if she is a little embarrassed.
It's not one of those requested I love yous. I comes out of the blue. We'll be playing or reading or getting ready for bed and she just turns to me, gets really close to me and says it as if it's a secret.
Oh my gosh, that's all I need.
I am mush.
