The house was quiet and tidy when Steve brought me home yesterday afternoon. His sister Sue was watching the boys for the day, and Daniel was napping in our big bed.
I felt tired, so I decided to go slip into bed next to Daniel. I didn't wake him up, and soon I drifted off. We napped together like that for a little while.
Then Daniel stirred and opened his eyes. He looked at me, and I looked at him, and I said, "Hi buddy. It's Mommy. Mommy's here. I'm so glad to see you."
Still drowsy, but clear-eyed, Daniel sat up and asked, "Where's Sue?" We called for her, and she came in.
"Hi Daniel," she said. "Can I get something for you?"
"I want Sue to see Mommy," Daniel said.
I thought my heart was going to sing.
After a minute, he lay back down and went back to sleep.
