I Love You to the Moon and Back

Mummy read me one of her favourite children’s stories …
And when we got to the end, she whispered into my ear …

May’s comment: I was at Waterstone’s buying some books for Sasha – looking to introduce him to Enid Blyton – Famous Five, in particular, my fave. Looking around the children’s section, I caught sight of “Guess How Much I Love You.”

I’ve read it so many times but I still love flipping through it, waiting till I reach the end. I’ve loved reading it to Sasha and now I read it Darcy and George on their special days – to say how much I love them. Darcy will be seven on Monday. For almost seven years she had been the constant by my side – patiently letting me learn to love BIG and freely – and loving me right back without a trace of doubt.  She had taught me to love all the way to the moon and back.“Love you to the moon and back” has become a way of saying “I Love You” – for people the world over.  Bet Sam McBratney never thought his simple words could say so much for so many people.

The story behind Guess How Much I Love You.

    I think it’s wonderful that children’s books often teach us the most important values of life!
    Happy early Birthday Darcy!
