Infinity + One

Infinity + One



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. :)

PS  This was read to me from a popsicle stick as I wrote this post:

What did one hat say to the other?

You stay here….I’ll go on a head. :)
