07 Aug when no one is watching
Do you ever watch your kids from a distance? Observe them while they’re lost in an imaginary world of their own creation?
Singing to a well-worn stuffed bear as if he was a newborn child. Rocking him. Kissing him. Promising to keep him safe.
That expression on her face is priceless. I realize she could not demonstrate this kind of love (for a stuffed animal no less) if she had not been shown it. What a gift to see this reflected back.
