My wife and I constantly use this to tell each other that we love each other, even when we can't speak to one another. Our children have seen this and picked up our little "body language." It's really cute and I hope they know what it means to us. Everyday I go to work, my two littlest one's will tell me they love me and then hold their hands up to show me. It's a ritual I wouldn't trade for the world and I think one of the greatest things we have ever taught our children. So, take some time to not only tell them you love them, but show them too. That way, no matter how far away you are, driving off to work, or coming home. You will always know you are loved, and they will too.
