No Boys Allowed

Out of the blue, Tucker said, "Mommy, I just love you like crazy."

(Right now, I can't think of seven words that I love more than those.)

With a smile from that started in my toes, I said, "Well, Tuck, I love you like crazy, too."

And suddenly, his voice changed. "No. You can't. I'm not a girl." (Apparently "love you like crazy" is an exclusively feminine expression.)

We settled on, "I'm wild about you." That one's gender neutral.

(And it's pretty great to be the first girl who gets his crazy love.)
