Madeline asks hilarious questions, very seriously, right before bed. Here are a few recent ones: Does Hootie (her grandma’s dog) brush his own teeth?
Do dogs ever wear shoes?
Do dragons talk?
Will you tell me the story of when Lovie was born? (Lovie is her stuffed cow).
I like this time of day – we’re both in her bed (I’m scrunched up). We just read at least three books, ate some Cheerios from a tiny cup, and now she is yawning. Her hair was just washed and smells like baby shampoo and she’s relaxing with her preferred circle of stuffed animals and blankets.
