Love Note From My Son

Fifth graders at my sons' school are studying how babies develop.

"After fecundation," begins the lesson, "the embryo begins to grow. At 8 weeks nearly all the organs are in place. At this stage, the embryo is called a fetus..."

The lesson goes on about how the fetus could not be nourished or supplied with vital oxygen were it not for the mother's life-giving blood.

It's no wonder the mother-child bond runs so deep, more so than I will probably ever experience. Which might partly explain this adorably honest note written to me by one of my sons not so long ago:


I love you more then

anithing (exept mom)...

I love you
