Love Bug and I were talking about something mundane. Me putting books away while she tidied up toys. She paused and touched my hand to stop me.
I can do that darling.
Um, is she real? Did she actually just call me darling? That boom you just heard was my heart exploding. I stopped putting books away and scooped her up in my arms, smothering her with kisses.
After I put her to bed last night she called out, so I went back in. Come closer she said as she reached her arms up. I did, and she held my face close.
I love you so much darling.
