He Loves Me Not

Tonight, I was sitting on the couch with Jaxon on my lap enjoying every second of cuddling my little boy. I give him a kiss and then we proceed to have this conversation:
Me: Jaxon, I love you.
Jaxon: Yuv oo (love you)
M: Do you love Mama?
J: No.
Pause. Pause. Pause. I'm feeling a little dejected.
J: Ami.
M: You love Ami?
J: YA! (VERY enthusiastically!)
J: Huntah (Hunter, Ami's 9 month old daughter).
M: Do you love Hunter?
J: Ya! Huntah. Huntah!
Now I'm thinking he's on a yes roll. My turn!
M: Do you love Mama?
J: No. Hunter.
Off my lap, onto give daddy kisses!
The thing I have been dreading since I found out he was a boy that evening of January 20, 2008 has happened... he loves another girl more than me! I just didn't think it would happen at 20 months old. I figured I had until at least kindergarten!!

I don't know whether to laugh or apologize...though I must say, both Hunter and I are quite flattered! We miss our little Jaxon-man! We think of him on each of our wagon rides! Well, the bright side of this is that our "arranged marriage" is turning into a voluntary thing, at least! :) And someday, Hunter will be SO glad you are her Mother-in-law! She might even love you more than me! :)

well, maybe he was saying he didn't love daddy, since in jaxon's world mommy is daddy and daddy is mommy, right?! i'd feel better thinking maybe he just doens't love BP! hee-hee ;)
