I love you anyway, too.

We are big fans of Olivia the Pig at our house.
 My favorite line in an Olivia book comes as Olivia's mom is putting her to bed, haggling over how many books they will read that particular night.  "Olivia's mother gives her a kiss and says, 'You know, you really wear me out.  But I love you anyway.'"
 "And Olivia gives her a kiss back and says, 'I love you anyway too.'"
 I'll be real honest, here.  This monkey wears me out.
 But one look at these pictures, at her vivid lust for life and all things happy and bright reminds me...
I love her anyway.  And she loves me anyway, too.
