Somewhere Over The...

The other night Grady was in bed. Hadley had long been asleep (she likes her sleep...Grady is a night owl). I went in to talk to him and tell him goodnight. Those times are so sweet, aren't they? I love bedtime.

I was sitting on the side of the bed, leaning over him with my face very close to his, talking. He started touching my face and head, naming my parts. He touched my eye and said, "Your eye." He touched my mouth and said, "Your mouth." He touched my nose and said, "Your nose."

Then he touched my eyebrow. He said, "Your rainbow."

It was so sweet. I don't know about you, but an eyebrow will now forevermore be a rainbow to me.

Grady says the sweetest things. Hadley uses a very caring, motherly nature to "take care" of you. She gets in your face and touches it and says things in a soft voice. She'll do Grady that way as if Grady is so much younger than she. It is sweet. Grady doesn't always want to be such a close talker. Grady seems to think rather deeply about some things. Asa is just a little doll now. Everyone should have the chance to play with dolls. Guess you can tell I love them.
