In the bathroom, I said, "Honey, even if you didn't love me, I still love you. I will love you no matter what you do. Although, I am happier when you love me. And we have more fun when you love me..." He threw his arms around me victoriously and said, "I love you, Mom! And you are my Mom!" He seemed thrilled that I would love him no matter what. We had a terific time after that. It was a little victory for us!
