My son's perspective

I sat and watched The Bachelorette:After the Final Rose. (yes...DVR is my friend)
Colby sat in the kitchen eating lunch.

He says to me, "Mom, maybe one day you'll get to be on the Bachelorette."

Snickering, I say, "Why do you say that son?"
"So you will have someone to love you... and because..."

He motioned with his hand and patted his chest over his heart.
"What son?"

He patted his chest again.

"Tell me what you mean. I don't understand what you are meaning."

"I don't want your feelings to be hurt again. Spencer hurt your feelings...3 times. Other people have hurt your feelings. Maybe you could find someone who won't hurt your feelings."

I struggled to hold back the tears...
I told him how feelings are hurt sometimes, but that doesn't mean people don't still love.

Colby is a very sensitive boy. I just didn't realize how much my pain has come across to him... and how much he desires for me to have it different.


  1. That is so, so sweet. (that kind of intense love from my child would've made me want to cry too.)

  2. What a wonderful kid. He loves you so much to say that. It makes my heart feel so good that you have wonderful kids.

  3. You are blessed! You have also taught your son about the greatest

  4. What a great kid. To love his mom soooo much.

    I think I would of cried right then and there.

  5. my heart broke a little just then, he's too sweet.
