Only 16 Years?

I looked at Sarah earlier today and just flashed her the sign language signs for “I love you” and she smiled and ran over and whispered in my ear “Daddy, I love you 16 years.” Apparently, 16 years is a really long time in her mind….kinda like forever. So rather than think the worst, like she’ll love me until she finds out she’s 16 and can’t date or she’s 16 and still has to be home by 10PM, instead of expecting her to rebel and choose to “not” love me at that point, I’m thinking like a three year old and thinking that from here, 16 years looks like forever. I love you too Sarah (for way more than 16 years)
