This morning, Squirto (aka Frodo) came pitter-pattering into our room at about 6. After my "Good morning, Squirto" hug/pull him into bed to see if he will accidentally fall back asleep so I can sneak another 30 minutes of sleep out of my night, I closed my eyes and pretended to sleep.
He played with my hair, he played with his stuffed R.J., he played with the sheets, he played with his fingers. Eventually he began to prod at my face. I think it was supposed to be gentle caresses. Wanting to scream from this drip torture, I opened my eyes pretty abruptly.
I was greeted by the most beautiful smile that extended all the way to the crinkles at the corners of his eyes. His whole countenance shined that I was awake to interact. I'm so thankful for the smiles of my children. I'm so thankful that I can still cause them.
Just by waking up.
