Scene: lunch out with the Schwartzkins
Rookie: *scooting into my space until he is cuddling my arm, which is trying to feed me vegetables but whatever, CUDDLES*
Rookie: Ahhhhh! *pretends to fall and cuddles harder into my arm* Good thing I found a cushion!
Me: Moms are a soft place to land, as the song sort of goes. Everyone needs a soft place to land
Rookie: Am I your soft place?
Owl, thoughtful: I think I'm mine
And that pretty much sums up the Schwartzkins right now.
