How to make Mommy cry

When Mommy's singing "You Are My Sunshine" to you for the umpty millionth time, holding back tears remembering the day you were born, and pauses right after "you make me" so she can sniff, you can make Mommy cry by saying "happy size ah gway." ("...happy, [when] skies are gray.")

And then when Mommy starts crying anew, thinking about the past year of your life and how much you've grown and how proud she is of you, you can make her cry again when she stops to sniff after she sings "please don't take my" and say "sunsina way."

This brought tears to my eyes too, because this is what I sing to my Paddycakes!

oh my, that makes me want to cry too! This age is probably my favorite so far (my oldest is 6), when they are starting to talk, and sing, and tell you "I love you". that and boys (at least mine) love their moms more. my daughter is daddy's girl all the way.
oh, and I love that picture you had yesterday of Ace, such gorgeous eyes!

only to be topped when they understand the song...and they start crying and say, "please don't die"....or "I don't wanna die"
