My mom would read "I love You This Much" to me all the time because we both loved how much the little rabbit loved his mommy. So now I tell my momma that i love her to the moon and back. I have a pillow at home on my bed that says it also.
I love my kids, but like I've told them, "I am not your friend, I am your parent. You HAVE friends. Too many kids have parents who want to be their friend, when what they really need is for their parents to act like PARENTS." My kids soo agree.
