Pauses...

Mommy, could you hold me?

Yes, my precious child.

Mommy, could I sit with you for just a little longer?

Yes...for just a little longer.

Mommy, can you carry me?

Yes...but you’re getting so big.

Mommy, I just checked a new book out of the library, could you read it with me?

Yes...come sit beside me and we’ll read.

It's been a fairly odd day...not bad, just...odd. But scattered amongst the oddness were shiny gems given to me by my children--who also, ironically enough, provided a portion of the oddness, but that's neither here nor there.

I may have mentioned once or twice how much I love these kiddos...and I seriously do. They're the snicker to my doodle...the aid in my lemons...the laughter in my rain...the shiny side of, well...everything.
