Don’t remember what we were talking about. More than likely, I was just doing what I do come night time and trying to send her off feeling safe and loved.
Me – “I love, love, love, love you. I adore you.”
Her – “What does adore mean?”
Me – “It means when you love someone sweetly and you tell them and show them your love so that they feel it. Like Nonna and Pappa with you. They adore you. You feel their love, right?”
She nodded and smiled.
And, I’m not sure what I can think of that a child would want more than to feel adored. Okay, maybe that and an ice cream cone…
