I love you zingo-99

Harley and I fell into this little game as many people do with children during night time wind down...

"I love you"
"I love you too"
"I love you three"

This has been going on since he was about 2 years old.  Naturally it evolved into the hundreds, thousands, millions, billions,trillians zillions, bazillions, katrillians and krillians and so on to infinity (Which he really doesn't get yet)  We've used outer space and the powers (squares and cubes, etc..)  And well, you get the idea.

Tonight this is how it went

"I love you beyond the end of outer space mom.  I love you with a number that is so big, I can't even explain it.  It's "way funky...  Nobody could ever count that high, but even if they tried, it would takes years and weeks!"

"That's a lot of love Harley."

"Yea, I know.  You know what it's called?  Zingo!  Zingo-99.  That's the last number in the whole world ever mom, and that's how much I love you."

"I love you Zingo-99  too.  I know about the Zingo, but didn't know the name, only the feeling part.".

"You DO?"

"Yep, I feel it too just like you said, but I didn't have a name for the feeling..  I think it's so cool that you gave it a name.  And it's a really great name, Zingo!"

"Hey Mom, wanna hear a dinosaur joke?"...
