sunshine sparkling on water droplets
petty arguments and
shiny moments of unexpected kindness
a small hand in mine
three pairs of blue eyes and
one pair of hazel
tugging and dragging and pulling me everywhere at once
"Mommy Mommy Mommy!"
piles of love
love so thick it sits on me like a second skin
easy tears and easy smiles
swimming in stuffed animals
(I try to fill them up enough to last five more months).
