Today I’m linking up with Lisa-Jo for Five-Minute Friday.
The rules: Write for five minutes. No editing, revising, overthinking, or backtracking. Just write.
We had matching dresses.
But you wore a bow.
We kept giggling at each other because I was tickling you and you were tickling me.
It was a little chilly but we didn't want to wear coats because no one would be able to see our pretty dresses.
"I smiling Daddy. And I tickling Mommy."
Oh, those days of tickling. And ice cream chins. And Bitty Babies. And holding you late at night sitting on the toilet while the shower runs hot. Steam trying to chase away the cough. That scary cough that hurt my heart with every breath.
The cough went away. The tickles have too. At least not as often.
No more matching dresses. Although we wore matching striped shirts just the other day. Moms and tweens do that sometimes. I loved it and you did too.
The giggles are still here.
I thank God for those giggles.
