Last night I missed out on my Avery time because I was busy getting drunk with the dilettantes. (See the latest entry on http://dilettanteclub.blogspot.com for details.)
This morning, Avery called out for me, so I went to get her and brought her back into our bed with me. She was half asleep, so I laid her down and kissed her and said, "I missed you so much last night, little peanut." She rolled over to face me and said, "I love you, mommy." Then she rolled back over to go to sleep. But one minute later, she rolled over again to face me and said brightly, "I'm a monkey!" with a huge smile on her face.
That said, she did roll over and go back to sleep. My sweet little monkey.
