Nothing’s better than hearing “I love you” come from your child’s sweet mouth. But when the little guy is still in that babbling phase and lives in a world of superheroes and princesses, that sentiment can come out in some hilarious ways. Here are seven, let’s call them “unique,” ways Bumpies say their tots express their love.

“DS tells me that he’s going to put syrup on me and eat me up. I take it as a compliment since he loves pancakes!” —Sage Mommy

“‘I love you as much as stars, unicorns and rainbows!’ Sometimes she adds new things to the mix like horses and flowers too.” —BrittaConner

"My bundle of joy can’t quite say ‘love,’ so she says, “I too, Mommy.’” —bstnmom72

“She doesn’t realize that we kiss with our lips, so she smacks her tongue against the roof of her mouth to mimic a kissing sound.” —goblue04

“I love you three much.” —_swhaler2618 _

“I love you like many Christmas trees and superheroes.” —silverandgold

“When my daughter first started saying ‘I love you,’ I would always respond with an ‘I love you too, baby.’ So then she started just saying ‘too, baby.’ And that’s how we’ve said it ever since!” —bballqueen01
