me: "Okay, well, it's like almost 10AM. We should all get out of bed now." [Among other reasons, the bed is just not big enough for four of us.]
Sam and Lily: [screech with laughter and start jumping around.]
me: "Should we go shopping today? Finish buying presents?"
Sam: "Oh, Mommy. I don't need any more presents."
me: "Huh, what?"
Sam: "I already have the best present of all: you as a mom."
Steve: "Oh, that's so sweet. Kerry, would you pass me some insulin?"
Sam: "Let's all take a group hug!"
ps: Sam was totally sincere; he's five and doesn't understand sarcasm yet. plus he hasn't had grad school erode his heart like Steve.
