Getting to Know You - Day 21

Day 21 – Another moment, in great detail

Today was a simple day. The kids are off, Alicia has a friend over, and I spent the day working. I've been sucking down Midol like they're candy, and it's helped. So moments that stand out? Generally speaking, not really.

Except the one where I was sitting on the couch, half watching Beezus and Ramona with the kids on the floor, and without a word, Alicia came up on the sofa, curled into my side, and slid her arms around my waist. I asked her what was wrong as I put my arm around her shoulder.

She just shook her head and smiled.

My ten-year-old daughter, who has the same size feet I do now, who is only two inches shorter than me at this point, who is growing up way too fast, just wanted to cuddle.

I don't know how much longer I'll get unsolicited cuddles like that. I'm going to treasure it.
