I don’t know if her eyes could sparkle any more brightly. She jumps in the hammock with me, bringing a blanket and jackets for us to keep warm.
“Can I snuggle with you?”, she asks
How can I resist her? “Of course!”, I say.
She snuggles in deep and we gaze at the clouds passing by in the sky. Her mind fills with questions: “Why are the clouds different colors? Why are they moving so fast? Is the moon moving too?”
She talks and babbles, finding animals amidst the clouds: camels missing humps, pigs on their back, and alligators without tails.
She whispers, “I love you so much mommy.”
