My son loves me, there’s no question about that.
One day, I crouched down and held out my arms. “Come give Mommy a hug.”
His face broke out into a huge smile, and he started to run toward me… but stopped in his tracks when the basketball game that my husband was watching switched to a car commercial. My son raced back to the TV and watched the entire commercial. Only then, without further prompting, did he run to me and give me my hug.
Yes, my son loves me. But he loves cars just a little bit more.
