I Love You More Than…

I can’t remember exactly when it started, it’s something that I always remember us doing from almost as soon as O could talk.

We say it to each other almost every day and it always melts my heart.

It used to be me that always started it but more often than not now it’s O who wants to run through our little “love you” routine.  Daddy has tried to muscle in on the action a few times but it is strictly a Mummy/Son thing.

I love you more than…

I love you more than tea

I love you more than blue milk

I love you more than red milk

I love you more than squishy doggy

I love you more than pumpkins

This can carry on for a good10 minutes, think of the Little Britain sketch (without the highly inappropriate suggestions towards the end).

I sometimes get a telling off if I say something that O doesn’t like, I love you more than coffee, usually gets a “Mummy, I don’t like coffee!” The trick being you have to say something the other person loves rather than yourself.

The game usually ends when O starts repeating what I’ve said but with a change of colour. “I love you more than green pumpkins” means O is struggling to think of anything although it does display a good knowledge of his colours.

A few minutes of my day that I will always treasure, long after my boy decides it is no longer cool to do.

    What a brilliant game! I really want to play this with my little boy, but he can only say bang, pop and bump at the moment… I might have to wait until he’s a bit older #OrdinaryMoments

    What a lovely lovely game!! The girls just blow kisses when I say I love you – I occasionally get a loo-oo but that’s about it! I’m sure Charlie would find it frightfully embarrassing – I’m going to try it though!!

    Ooh this melts my heart too and he’s not even my boy! What a lovely game. Such precious moments to treasure. Thank goodness for blogs to enable us to remember these special times. X
