He Still Loves Me

There is something so genuine
so unfaltering 
so unconditional
about a childs ability to love.

Carter is a wonderful kid.

He loves me whether I am short and fat
or tall and skinny
He loves me when I don't wear make up
or when my hair is standing straight up
and I look kind of like Don King.
He loves me when I'm goofy
or I am telling him he needs to "Shhh!"
He loves me when I leave him for 3 days straight
with his Aunt and Grandma
so I can fix up his house we are moving to.

Kids are resilient.

He surprises me at the oddest times.
And somewhere I have seen that same behavior before
Perhaps from his Daddy?
