"Love You Forever"

You know it. I know you know it. The book by Robert Munsch entitled "Love You Forver". It makes mommies all over North America cry.

I remember saying this exact phrase "Love You Forever" to Aidan both before and after he was born...because it's true. I will love him forever.

I just found out however, that Robert Munsch wrote this book in the aftermath of his wife's two stillbirths. One in 1979 and one in 1980. He said that it was written out of someone saying to him "write what would have happened"...

So, "Love You Forever" my sweet baby boy.


  1. oh wow.
    you know I have always felt there was something else about that story.

    just checking in on you.

  2. Found my way over from Glow. Lump in throat just at the thought of the story (which we of course have at home), but had no idea about its origins.

    Aidan is a lovely name. I don't really have a way of adequately telling you how sorry I am.
