"Mommy, are you stronger than anything?"
"Well, no. I'm not stronger than everything. I'm stronger than many things, but not everything."
"Are you stronger than any bad guy who would try to take me away from you?"
Implicit question: Mommy, can you keep me safe?
"Ty, they might be stronger than me, but I am way more fierce than any bad guy who could hurt you."
"What means fierce?"
"Fierce means I would never ever stop fighting for you. If anyone ever hurt you or tried to take you away, I would never give up until you are safe again."
"Fierce. Okay, mommy."
"Tyler? Who has a fierce mom?"
His sweet, proud smile and sparkling eyes. "I do."
"You totally do."
