Today Gavin came up to me and said . . .

Mom, I love you.
{My heart melts}
 . . . But not when you yell at me.
{Who, me?}

I said . . .

Really? I love you all the time. No matter what.

To which Gavin responded . . .

Awww.
Yeah, I don’t love you when you yell at me.

    Ouch! They just instinctively know how to turn on the mom guilt, don’t they? My kids don’t love me when I make them do schoolwork that they don’t like. I think that’s the mark of a good mom. If you’re doing your job, your kids may not always ‘like’ you, but deep down I think they still love you.

    This is cute. It sounds like something my kids would have said when they were little.
