My youngest son (11) loves it in the mornings when he gets up. He comes to the living room and usually crawls into his mothers lap, (at this point I have learned don't let him on mine.) He looks blissfully into her eyes and says in the most tenderest voice, "I love you Mom" then he rips one that rattles windows.
It happens every morning, that is why I don't let him around me until he gives his 21 gun salute.
I asked my wife why she allows him to do that, she says mothers are immune, I say they are not all together. He says she brings out the best in him.
