I stared at Iñigo and marveled at his thoughtfulness. "Oh, Iñigo! You love me!"
"Of course I do," he said while stuffing the box of raisins into my handbag. "My brain loves you. My hair loves you. My eyes love you. My tummy loves you. My legs love you."
Then he stopped what he was doing, turned to me with his eyes all big and wide.
"Mama! My whole body loves you! Even my feet! Why?"
"This is a scary feeling. Is there something wrong with me?"
I hugged him super tight and said, "Yeah, love is scary but it's the bestest, biggest, most beautiful feeling in the world!"
And he sat there in my arms then said, "I'm not scared to love you, Mama. And Papa and Vito and baby. I'm brave. I can do it!"
Yes, you can, my darling boy. Yes, you can!
