As I was making lunch this afternoon,
Addie came into the kitchen and sidled up to me,
leaning against my upper thigh.
He is my snuggler, prone to kisses and squeezes,
and I take them any way I can get them.
I was expecting some words of love and sweetness when
Addie looked up at me and said with affection,
"Mom, guess what?"
"And guess who?"
With that he turned and left the kitchen.
Clearly, I am full to overflowing with gratitude for
his kind words and sentiments.
I am glad he feels free to share his heart felt emotions with me.
Maybe he will see his way clear later to ask me
"Why not?" and offer up some "chicken snot" for good measure.
I can only hope.
