Snuggle Time

Scene: Nighttime, in my bed, the monkey beside me.
She wraps her arms about my neck, hugs me close and says
"I wish I could always stay little so you could be the boss of me forever."
Brief pause. I'm thinking, Zero Boss eat your heart out. Then: she rolls onto her tummy:
"Scratch my back. Harder. Up a bit more. The other side. Not so hard. Down a bit."

Hmmm. maybe I'm not understanding this word, BOSS.

LOL! My daughter has her own version. "I love you. Now tickle my back."

One of these days our daughters will be on their own and we will be wishing we had one more day to scratch their back.....then we will cry.
Even when I don't want to do it, I always do because I know how much she loves it and how fleeting time is.
