I have to mark the day: Sunday Jan 16, 2011
Cy gave me my first unsolicited "I love you, Mommy"
Sure, it was preceded with "I love blueberries" ....but I'll take it. I'm not sure what prompted his outpouring of love, but he gave me some serious hugs to follow it up.
How can he be so sweet one minute and so defiant the next? I guess it helps when we remember and savor the good times and try to move on from the bad.
