Saturday Night With Our Nieces

We spent Saturday night with our nieces. We went to a carnival, to dinner, and to the play ground.  Presley fell and busted her lip at the playground.  It was a big bloody mess, but my husband scooped her up and took her to the bathroom.  He handled the situation.  I was holding Paxten and before I could figure out what to do my husband was already on it.  I'm so sorry Presley received her first busted lip on our watch, but it was incredible watching my husband solve the crisis.  When we got home I held Presley and kept an ice pack on her lip while we talked.  It was a bounding moment for us.  My husband was playing with Paxten upstairs. It was a bounding moment for them.  Later when I was tucking Presley into bed I told her I loved her, and she replied: "I love you too."

Her four little word reply, "I love you too," sent my heart into another realm.  It was exhilarating.

Damn I love those little girls.
