“Mommy it’s important to do things with love.” click click click, nuzzle nuzzle. Some days the thoughts may not be as philosophical: “Goat rhymes with tugboat. Goat, Tugboat, Goat, Tugboat! They rhyme!!!” click click click, nuzzle nuzzle. “Your bed is a rectangle.”
Though there are days that I have to be up before our soft alarm clock, there are other days that I find myself delaying putting my feet on the cold floor just to wait for a few snuggles from our little blond girl. It’s a pretty great way to start a day.
