i just love my little girl.
i love her laugh
i love her eyes
i love how her face becomes a mixture of
mashed potatoes and popeye
when she is overjoyed to see me.
i love that she hits things as a sign of affection
i love that she needs to touch thisthisandthis
and maybe this
and this too and
no darlin’ those are scissors.
i love how she drops her chin
and throws that right eyebrow up
when we share a joke.
i love that she made me
more of me
i love how she loves me
and i miss her when she goes to sleep
i wish i could stay home with her every single day.
to my scarlet(t) fox,
i love you.
yes, i am sure.
yes, those two bottom teeth are adorable.
yes, i cannot wait to wake up and see you before i go to work.
i love you good morning good night,
i love you,
