The one about the booty pinching lion and a very sweet kiss

Three nights ago Gwen crawled into bed with us crying about a lion that had just pinched her booty. Though we are not generally proponents of co-sleeping, Steve and I were both very tired and very aware that our baby is growing up much too fast. So we snuggled her up between us, protecting her from that nasty booty pinching lion, and soaked in the rare sweetness of a calm and peaceful Gwen. 

That booty pinching lion must be unable to resist Gwen's perfect little bum, because she has sought the protection of our bed every night since. (Actually, he visits early in the morning......just before sunrise.)


This is the groggy conversation we had early this morning.

G: Can we go to the pool?
M: Tonight.
G: (Leans over, places both of her hands sweetly on my cheeks and gently kisses my forehead in gratitude) 
M: (I smile as my heart totally melts)

a couple minutes later.....
G: Mommy, here take my booger.
