To The Moon & Back
I love you to the moon & back.
For as long as I can remember, I have used that phrase when telling my boys how much I love them. As they grew up, we would get in a 'contest' proclaiming how much we loved each other.
Me: To the moon & back.
Ben and/or John: To the moon & back times a million trillion.
The game would go on as we tried to 'one up' the other. Many times we just proclaimed 'to infinity and beyond'.
Tonight, after dinner, Ben noticed a new wooden sign by the kitchen sink that had 'our' phrase on it.
Confused, he asked me if I made it. I replied, no, I bought it at Hallmark.
He got this look on his face - a look of confusion - and then said he thought I had made that phrase up.
No, Ben. I didn't make that phrase up, but it holds true.
I love you and John to the moon & back.
