Caidin and I talk a lot about love. The different types of love – love for a family member, love for a friend, love of things. He’s asked me about old boyfriends, what it’s like to be in love and I’ve answered him honestly. I’ve told him that love can be wonderful, it can be consuming, it can be overwhelming, but most importantly when it comes to love, I’ve shared with him that I believe in loving fully. I’ve explained to him that people hold back out of the fear of being hurt. But when we choose to love fully we seldom have regrets because we didn’t reserve anything. He also hears me say ‘I love you’ often – to him, to his Dad, to his Grandma, to our animals. Being willing to show love and share love, without condition, teaches a child to embrace love fully and completely.
