What Comes Around.......

For as long as I can remember Marc and I have been torturing Chase with the question, "Who do you love more? Me or Daddy? Me or Mommy?" It's a joke because he is so adamant about never ever picking one over the other. He gets a bit belligerent about it. "I love you both the same!" We try to get him any way we can, Marc with, "Come on buddy, I'm much more fun. You definitely love me a little more." Or me with, "Chase, it's alright, you don't have to say anything, I just know that you love me a smidge more." For some reason this bugs him to no end, so of course we persist with it. You can ask Saige the same thing and she'll just roll her eyes and walk away. So it's definitely not as fun to do to her.
Last night Marc and Saige went to Atlantic City for the Hannah Montana concert so it was just Chase and I. Chase went out for a while and as soon as he got home he said, "Can I sleep in your room?" But of course. This morning I got him up extra early so we would have time to lie there. We had to get up but he wanted five more minutes. So I said, "Okay, but tell me something." He said, "I love you." To which I replied, "I love you too." He said, "I love you more than you love me." I said, "That is simply not possible." Then he took my chin in his little hand and gently turned my head towards his and said in the quietest little whisper, "It's okay Mom, we're alone, you can admit you love me more than Saige." Funny boy. I don't know were he gets it from.

This story reminds me of growing up and how our Mom would wait until Amy was out of earshot and then would confirm what I knew already - that she loved ME most of all! Who could blame the dear woman?

Your reality is definitely how you remember things happening. So good for you Chris. But I know the truth, Mom, Dad and even Pepper loved me the best.

FYI - for anyone who didn't know us growing up and didn't see what really went on in the house let me help you out a little.

Amy was always considered a "special child" in a "you know what I mean, wink, wink" kind of way. Her recollections of her earlier years may be somewhat clouded by the various medications she was prescribed by the team of doctors that the family had on call in case of what we called an "Amy-ergency" (uncalled for screaming, knocking her hand on her head for no reason, wild cursing at strangers???)

I hope this helps clarify her inane recollections to some degree.
