Today, Sophia came up behind me, and like she was catching a fly between two hands, or banging together a pair of symbols, simultaneously gave both of my love handles a BIG clap. And then did it again. And again--- and squeezed. I couldn't stop laughing... and she said,
"what's so funny mom?" ---
"oh... it's just funny that you couldn't help but pat my love handles... it's not the best part of my body."
"oh... they're the funniest part of your body?"
Something like that. The competition's steep these days. Am I to that point where my children are going to start noticing? ... oh heavens.
(No I don't think I've ever said "oh heavens"... but it felt just right.)
