"When I'm big," he said, "I'm going to live in the house right behind us so that I can just walk right over whenever I want."Later that day, when we were talking, I asked him if he remembered telling me he'd live right behind us.

"Oh yes!" he replied.Every time that kid comes even close to frustrating me, before I know it, he melts my heart into a big puddle all over again.
"Ok, now I just need you to sign an agreement so I can hold you to that when you're older," I joked.
"Ok! I'll sign," he said. "Because I really do want to see you every day when I'm big."
Now I need to go find a piece of paper and a super-permanent pen....
