The other night as I snuggled up with Nadia in her twin bed we had a laugh attack like no other. Everything she said brought me to stitches. Every expression I made doubled her over with giggles that emanated from her toes.
Last night in the shower, she and I sang the Star Spangled Banner at the top of our lungs. She capped off our performance with an improv with a voice that I can only describe as a possession from the depths of the underworld meets Cali-girl. No one does the Valley-Girl-Princess-of-Darkness like Nadia.
Tonight, while doing pistachio math, she stopped, squared off and thanked me for helping her be a math girl.
I want to squeeze these moments in time, squish them deep into my heart so I will always be able to pluck them out when ever I need a little girl time.
I hope she can do the same.
