Can I just say, again, that I love my little snickerdoodle?
Yes, she began her I’m tired wail at 1pm and didn’t fall asleep until twenty minutes ago.
Yes, she has been kinda snarking at me all day
Yes, she’s been making diva demands with her newfound come here move (which unfortunately she learned from me)
Yes, she’s having those terrible teething moments where she wants none of your help but wants all of your help at the same time
But then she smiles at me
Through her fresh tears
Through her discomfort
Through the annoyance that I don’t come as fast as she beckons
Through the fury at being told, “No” and “Danger!” repeatedly
She smiles at me and I kinda love it
No, I just plain ol’ love it!
