Elmer and I aren't big talkers. When Kai was first born, Elmer was in Hawaii and I was still in Washington ; it was like pulling teeth to get him to talk to me for more than 15 minutes. It isn't a bad thing, we just don't find the need to fill every minute together with words. Sometimes it is nice to just be tOgThEr, but who wants to sit silently on the phone for hours? Not me and certainly not Elmer! Long distance relationships are hard like that and if I had to do it again I don't think I could. I nEed ThIs mAn! That is why I love our sMalL tAlk, when we are jUst BeInG tOgTheR, doing nothing at all:
Me: "I love you baby!"
Elmer: "I love you more!"
Me: "No, I love you more!!!"
Elmer: "NO, I LOVE YOU MORE!!!"
Me: "Okay, you can love me more but I loved you first..."
... And you know what?!?! Every day when I wake up I love him mOrE!!!!
I have to explain the NAME! For those of you who don't know, BOTH my SoN and his dAd are named ELMER! dAddY ELmEr LOVES SaNDwicHeS ( maybe because I haven't yet mastered my cOOkIng SkiLLs, I am not sure! ) So when I am NoT bUsY making ELmEr SaNDwicHes I am the ELmeR SaNDwiCh!!! and I LOVE every minute!
