My brother and his girlfriend came over for supper, a rosemary butter chicken and spinach ricotta manicotti. A very chill, beautiful family night. Princess D was stoked.

D: (suddenly kisses Mom on the cheek, pauses) Are we allowed to kiss? Mom: (melting inside) Yes, baby. D: (kisses Mom again, on the lips) I love you every day and always. Even when you are not here and I am at preschool you are with me… in my heart. Mom: (melts more, decides D will get her long, long, long snuggle.)
(I’m thinking I got my Christmas gift early with that one.)
