You Lose!

Yesterday was my birthday...and how rad is Facebook for such an occasion?!? I usually experience a sort of "16 Candles" kind of birthday, where the passing of another year is a secret, easily forgotten by even me. Instead, I logged into Facebook tonight and dozens of "Happy Day" messages were there...each exactly suited to the person making the wish! Some were funny, some sweet, others wistful...What a treat.

Tommy is at a sleepover tonight (his first one, not including sleeping at my parents' house!) and so we're missing him so much, but we're also enjoying soaking up our boy, Scotty. Without an older brother to override him, he's really shining this evening. He's making jokes, telling stories, and generally being even more Scotty than ever!

Tommy taught him a game that my Grandma Mary plays with him...she says "I love you" and he answers "I love you too!" She says, "I love you three" and he answers "I love you four". Then she "wins" by saying "I love you MORE!" and he loves that game.

Tonight, Scotty and I played the game and it sounded like this:
Mommy: I love you!
Scotty: I love you too!
Mommy: I love you three!
Scotty: I love you four!
Mommy: I love you MORE!
Scotty: I love YOU more! Ha! YOU LOSE!!!

Hmmmm...that's the kind of losing that I need a lot more of. It certainly made day three of a ridonkulous migraine bearable... Barely.
