Even though she’ll be 10 in two weeks (hold me someone, please), Meg still likes me to dry her hair for her. She sits on the floor, quietly reading, and I brush and dry her hair, sometimes longer than I need to just to keep her there, needing me for a bit longer.
Izzie likes to sing almost as much as she likes lambs. The other night we sat together singing Laurie Berkner’s Moon Moon Moon, just the two of us.
Yesterday we watched “The Princess and the Frog” and I had Drew all snuggled up next to me for the entire movie. He held my hand tight. Then he started sobbing when Raymond the firefly died and I had to cry right along with him.
Annie has been practicing writing her letters. She asks me to spell things all the time and she writes them down on whatever she’s drawing. Her favorite thing to write is her friend T’s name, a little boy from preschool whom she just adores.
These little things are so little, yet when they’re added together, they mean so much more.
What little things are making you happy today?
