Just Because...

The other day while Corbin was sitting on the potty waiting for something "exciting" to happen we had the following conversation:
Me: "Corbin I am so proud of you for being such a big boy! I love you." (kissed his cheek)
Corbin: "Why do you love me mom?" (wiping my kiss off)
Me: "Because you are my little boy and you make me happy."
Corbin: "Oh."
Me: "Do you love your mommy?"
Corbin: "Yes."
Me: "Why do you love me?"
Corbin: "Just because mommy!" (kissed my hand and smiled at me)
Yeah... he melted my heart. My little 2-year old understands more about love than many... he loves me "just because".... and that's just fine with me. We don't need reasons to love each other, we just need to love. Don't you just love "potty-talk?" It's always very enlightening.

reminds me of the thanksgiving when we went to bryce's family... Porter freely gives kisses if you tell him to... so he kissed everyone. bryce's sisters family doesn't really 'do' the physical affection and porter literally sought out his most shy uncle climbed up on his lap and refused to kiss him anywhere but on the mouth... several times he approached him throughout the weekend. its cute how kids don't judge and just love everyone so freely no reasons needed (i think that stage comes later!)
