the sweetest thing

it started out as a really funny discussion...

dom:  mommy, i want you to have a tiny belly.
me:  well, we are going to have to wait because baby is inside.  so mommy's belly needs to get bigger first, because the baby is growing.  just like you did!
dom:  but i like you to have a tiny belly mommy.
me:  okay, i will, after the baby is born.
dom:  so, after the baby comes out, you are going to have a tiny belly?
me:  yes, i promise. 
dom:  okay, so the baby will be my best friend and your belly will be tiny.
me: *tear* you want the baby to be your best friend?
dom:  yes, my bestest friend.

... and ending as the sweetest thing the lil' man has said...  even better than, "i love you".
