A few hours ago, while waiting for karate class to begin, Lizzie made her way onto my lap and asked me: "Mom, do you know why I want to be on your lap right now?"
I looked down into her smiling face and I responded with my own smile. "Well, I'm thinking that it's because you love your mama so much that you just always want to be on her lap and hugging her."
Lizzie: "Well, it's true that I love you, sure; but really, I just want to sit on someone's lap. Anyone's lap will do, really!"
Then she threw back her head and laughed uproariously!
That kid...she's one in a million, my daughter with the twinkly eyes and endless laugh.
