"No Mommy! I'm not a baby! I'm a big boy!"
"I know you're a big boy, but you'll always be my baby."
"NO! I am your big boy, not a baby!"
"Can I still call you 'love,' is that okay?"
Not even 3 minutes later
"We're almost there baby, are you ready to play with your friends?"
"Call me LOVE!"
Lucas fell asleep in the car on the ride home. After I tucked his blanket in around him, I kissed him on the head and whispered "I love you baby."
