The other day my son left a comment on the blog.
Just four simple words.
“I love you, mom.”
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….seriously…..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 comment-leaving 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.

What did one hat say to the other?
You stay here….I’ll go on a head.
