Remember the other day?
Remember how we all decided we were rock stars?
I mean….we already knew you were….I just thought everyone else needed to know.
And then you left the most amazing comments…..
….because that’s what rock stars do.
But one comment stood out from all the rest.
Just four simple words.
“I love you, mom.”
My speech-giving rock star son had read the post and left a comment for me on the blog.
I read that comment once….then again….and again….and again. I couldn’t believe it.
I couldn’t believe he had read the post.
I couldn’t even believe he left a comment. I mean….he’s a teenager. Isn’t he supposed to be in a rock band with long hair and glaring at me and telling me how I don’t understand him with all of the angst of a misunderstood youth?
Not that there isn’t plenty of eye-rolling and glaring going on around here.
But not today.
Today he was a rock star.
I didn’t want to embarrass him by leaving a comment on the blog.
So I e-mailed him
Short and sweet…..just six simple words:
“I love you….infinity + one.”
His reply was swift and sure.
That speech-giving rock star of mine didn’t miss a beat as he replied:
“Mom….I love you, too…..and I appreciate the sentiment….
…..but that is mathematically impossible.”
I stood in my kitchen and laughed and laughed and laughed.
He was right.
And not so right…..because you see…..I knew something that one day he would understand.
Infinity + one isn’t mathematically possible…..
.…..unless you’re a mom.
