Drew wasn't feeling very well today (tummyache) so when he asked me to lay down with him at quiet time, I happily obliged.

As we laid side by side, and I closed my eyes, I heard a whisper.

"I love you, Mommy."

I opened my eyes to peer at my sweet little man, and I said, "I love you, too, Buddy."

He held my hand (just like I used to do with my mom), and his other arm rested gently against my neck.

A tear slipped down my cheek.

Sometimes, a little boy just needs his mommy.

Today, this mommy just needed her little boy.
