Ivo and I have had an off day today. We were snippy towards each other for no apparent reason and have been going through our day without saying much to one another. He was getting ready to leave for an appointment when he came in and gave M a kiss goodbye. I got a nod - that was it. He started walking out of the house when M asked me, "why didn't daddy give you a kiss goodbye?" I told her he probably forgot and that he was in a hurry. She took off running through the house and, when she got to him, told him he had forgotten to give me a kiss. She grabbed his hand and pulled him through the house while singing Barney's "I love you" song. "I love you, you love me, we're a happy family..." He came and kissed me goodbye and, just like that, all was right in the world. And in our family. Because, she's right, we are a happy family.
Kids are so amazing with their pure hearts and pure intentions. My sweet, sweet girl.
