Me and my girl

As G and I ran errands earlier today, our last stop before home was the grocery store. We walked up to the glass doors, and they automatically opened for us. Little G giggled as we passed through and asked how that happened. We've done this hundreds of times before, but for some reason she really noticed it this time. Making our way through the aisles, I told her it was magic, which fascinated her.

While we waited at the checkout, she eyed the doors impatiently and could not wait until we got to them.

"Open Sesame!" I said, and the doors slid open as commanded.

"Open Sesame!" G repeated gleefully, and the next set of doors graciously obliged.

We moved toward the van and G shouted "Open Sesame!" Miraculously her door did as it was told.

After I buckled the girlie into her carseat, she smiled and yelled at her door,

"Close the Sesame, close the sesame!"


G decided to wear her "Toopy and Binoo" pyjamas tonight. She shrieked excitedly as I pulled them from her drawer. I helped her change out of her clothes and as I pulled off her shirt I grabbed her close to me, tickling her a bit as her cuteness was irresistible, and I gave her a quick peck on her cheek.

"Mommy!" she said laughing, "...what are you doing?"

"Mommy's stealing a kiss!", I replied.

My little girl put her hands on either side of my face, brought her own face close to mine and planted a light butterfly kiss on my cheek.

"Now I'm taking it back!" she exclaimed excitedly.


Magic and kisses all in one day. Life can really be sweet.

Is it possible to say that she is a cutie-patootie too many times? I didn't think so!! How adorable!!

I remember one time when I gave Issei a kiss on the cheek, he was being such a boy and pretending to rub it off...I just asked him if he was "rubbing it in for later?"
He just smiled...and now we use that a lot!!!
