Night Time Conversation

Tonight, after a book (WALL-E, his old favorite movie, is making a come back), scripture, and prayer... I tucked my boy in, grabbed his face, and said "Asher, I need to tell you something. Are you listening?"
"Yeah."
"Some days are easy, huh?"
"Yeah."
"And some days are hard."
"Yeah. Some days have bad feelings in it."
"Yeah that's true, Buddy. Some days do have bad feelings in them. But you know what?"
"What?"
"I love you every day."
Asher smiled. "I love you every day too."
"Even the hard days. I love you every day."
"I love you to the moon and back."
"I love you to the sun and back!"
"No, Mom! It's not sunny, it's moony!"
"Ha! You're right. Well, I love you to infinity and beyond."
"No Mom. You have to say 'to the moon and back.'"
"Alright. I love you to the moon and back."
"I love you to the moon and back too."

PS Today at church, he told me he loved me to the temple and back.

That is so sweet. And 'moony' should totally be a word.
