Last night when I was trying to put Aria to bed, she was bouncing in my lap with a little too much energy left over. She was facing me and flailed her arms a little, which knocked my glasses off my face.

As she sometimes does when all of a sudden my shields are down (or knocked onto the floor), she put her great big eyes right up in my face with a great big smile. She said, “hi!”

I started giggling because she was just so incredibly cute.

So she made her eyes even bigger, with her forehead pressed up against mine, and sang¬†dramatically, “bum bum bum!”

I lost it.
