Mom and Dad


Emma, How much do we love you? Way, way more than you know... Mom and Dad


I love you, Emma.

“How much?”

SO much.


“How much is ‘SO’?”

Way, way more than you know…


Emma, I love you as bright as each sparkling star, and as way out as space, I love you that far.


Emma, I love you as BIG as a great lion’s roar, and as deep as the ocean, I love you much more.


Don’t feed the lions


Emma, I love you as loud as a thundery sky, and as tall as the mountains, I love you that hi g h .


Emma, I love you as silly as a puppy dog’s kiss, and as quiet as midnight, I love you like this.


“Do you love me every day?” you ask with surprise. “Or does love come and go like passing butterflies?”


Emma, I love you as steady as the moon and the sun, though some of our days are not full of fun.


Emma’s

Emma

“Like when you feel mad?” you ask with distress, “’cause I’ve broken the rules or made a big mess?”


Emma, I love you when you’re nice, and when you’re cranky, too. I love you without liking the naughty things you do.


Emma, my ‘love you’ doesn’t change like the weather of the days. It’s a certain kind of thing in many different ways.


You’re my sweetie, my dear, my smile and my giggle. You’re my playmate for always, my hug and my wiggle.


Hanging out with you is where I want to be, eating ice cream sundaes or watching the TV.

Emma, under your umbrella, behind you on a bike, by you and beside you is what I really like.


Emma


Emma, I can’t imagine life before you came along. You are the music to my dance and my song. I am meant for you, and you are meant for me, the one I love forevermore. Undeniably.


I love you, Emma.

“How much?”

SO much.


“How much is ‘SO’?”

Way, way more than you know…


Dedicated to Cole James, Adam Jon, Julia Rose, and Will David, who fill my heart with gigantic love. — MR
