Last night was Sunday night football family sit-on-the-couch evening. At one point as I was sitting on the couch, Alaythia spontaneously came up to me, threw her arms around me, and said, “Mommy, you’re SOOOOO cute!” I felt appropriately charmed by her sweetness.
30 seconds later, she started pounding on my thigh with her fist, then exclaimed in seeming shock and horror, “Mommy, what is IN there??!”
I felt a little less charmed.
