This morning Sophie and I were the first ones up. Well, except for John who’d already left for work. That is the one thing I’ll miss when school starts; those waking up slow mornings where the kids and I can just cuddle up and talk.
Soph and I were on the couch and she was telling me a story. I was mostly paying attention to the sunlight on her face, the beautiful grey and green in the brown of her eyes. I asked her if I could take a picture of her eye, and she said I could only if she could take one of mine.
Then, she started to take a closer look at my face.
"Mama," she said, "your eyes are all squishy and liney. Are you really old? Are you going to die?"
"Well. Uh. I’m getting a little bit old, but not OLD, you know? Don’t worry."
You took a nice picture of her eye.
All old and liney indeed. Send her over here and i’ll show her liney.
i love these moments. i miss your liney eyes.
Every once in a while Max looks at me with a mixture of tenderness and fear and I know he’s thinking exactly the same thing….
Wow look at both of the georgeous eyes.
And kids, pppffftt. They sure know how to make us feel mortal.
Funny those kiddos… I love those shots great perspective..it will be fun for you to look at those again in about 30years ..lol
If she wants to see what her eyes will look like when she’s older, she should look at yours. They’re just alike.
