Every night, Macs and I have a tradition.
He has to give me surprise kisses.
I have to give them to him.
We count them.
Tonight, he asked for them with his hug good night… I gave him four.
“THAT’S A LOT!!”
He made me count them.
Then it was my turn.
” How many?” he asked.
“Three.” I choose.
” OK. I’ll count….” he starts to kiss… then backs away.
“No, you count.”
“OK,” I say…. and get ready to kiss his sweet cheeks…
“Count in SPANISH.” he pulls back.
“OK…. Uno, ::kiss:: Dos, ::kiss:: Tres ::kiss::”
“That’s Spanish!!” he claims
I smile and nod.
“What’s Choco?” asks my boy.
” :::laughing::: You mean Quatro?”
“Crotchro!?!” it takes him a moment… and he repeats himself realizing what he said, “CROTCH RO!?!?”
More laughing from me…. “No silly… Qu AH Tro… It’s FOUR in Spanish.”
“OH…. Four’s a lot… right mom?”
