My sick kids and I were watching Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs for the 237th time this afternoon. At one point in the movie, two squirrels are in love and the boy squirrel holds the girl squirrel romantically, sort of like they were doing “the dip” if they were dancing.

During this scene Seth looked at me and said, “Mom, when I’m bigger can I do that?”
“Do what Seth?”
“Hold girls like that?”
After the initial shock of the question wore off (hold girls?! never!) I thought, well, they’re not kissing or anything, just holding each other, so I answered, “Yes Seth, when you’re bigger you can.” Then Seth ever so sweetly asked, “Girls like you Mom?”, to which I responded, “Of course.” The sweetness just got sweeter as he added, “Because I love you Mom. I love you so much”.
Seriously. It doesn’t get any better than that.
