This very evening Terry was faced with the question, "Do you love me?" from Caleb. Caleb had taken a bite of Madelyn's finger in the bathtub because he was upset with her. Terry was giving them a bath, and when Caleb did this, he was immediately taken out. He knew that he upset his Dad~extremely. So, of coarse his security was feeling threatened...with that, he asked his dad. This question is asked by a lot of children, and if it isn't asked, it is thought of by most children~ if not all children.
The book Always is a great book to read to your young children. This book is about a little boy who asks the "do you love me when..." questions. The Mom reassures him that she loves him no matter what~ Always! Caleb and I love reading this book together. We comment on some of the things that the little boy has done. Caleb says, "Oh-oh, that isn't very nice." I let him know, that his mom still loves him. We also talk about how his dad and I love him no matter what. Great book!!
