After giving her her nightly snuggle quota, I headed out to do my thing. A few minutes later, I circled back already missing that little ball of love and happiness that swirls around me. I drew some hearts on her back, which she understood and she giggled softly. Then, I leaned in and said quietly, “You’re the best.” She made another faint giggle and drifted off into wherever her spirit goes at night. I love starting and ending her day sweetly with some quality time mixed in during the day. It’s like a love energy sandwich. The morning and nighttime words take only a little time, but I think they’re important. And quality time, well, nothing says “I love you” like quality time.
