My Hero

* * * * * *
This is my angel. Isn't he sweet?
I took this photo of Aaron last month when I was putting him to bed.
He always wants me to lay by him when he goes to bed, but there were some nights last month when he would grab my hand and hold it so tight and hold it really close to him, then he would grab hold of the headboard and hold it so tight as well.
When I asked him why he had been doing that, he said it was so the monsters couldn't take me away.
Thinking about that conversation and looking at this photo makes me cry.
When I asked him why he doesn't hold my hand like that during the day, he said its because during the day he can see me.
It melted my heart.

I asked him what monsters he was talking about, he mentioned an episode of Scooby Doo that made him nervous. Go figure. Poor kid.

What a grip!

He is so precious.
Is it any wonder that he is the light of my life?
If he only knew what a hero he is to me.

I love you, Aaron, my sweet boy.
