My daughter cuddled up with me in bed yesterday as I was trying to read my book and begged me to read to her instead. She certainly knows my soft spot. Anytime my daughters bring me a book, I will read it to them. Yesterday she picked Where the Sidewalk Ends, by Shel Silverstein. I love this book. And I love the fact that my daughter, at three, is just starting to really pay attention to the poems and the illustrations and find them humorous.
This little poem from the book, and it's accompanying illustration, reminded my of my friend's son, Levi. He's two, and when we visited him recently he showered affection on my daughters, especially the one-year-old--tackling her with hugs and kisses over and over again. He is adorable.
And so I present, for Levi:
Wishing you hugs, giggles, kisses, grins, cuddles, and wins today!
