When a little girl pushes the pillow out of your lap, and categorically plants herself into your lap, you know you’ve been adopted. Imagine her softly holding your face in her tiny hands and stroking your cheek, although I’m convinced hers was softer. Isn’t it awesome when a kid runs her fingers through your hair?
It’s funny how your heart flutters when you see a midget of a little girl looking at you as though you were Barbie. And not just any Barbie. The one you wailed, beat your hands and feet, and hated your parents for not buying. The one you made yourself sick for. The one your parents had to eventually buy because they understood that in this case only the policy of appeasement would work. A person can resist all temptations life throws at them but they can’t resist the selfless love looking out through the eyes of a little girl.
You almost find it hard to believe the boy who tells you that the little girl has a temper. But when your baby cousin brother climbs into your lap to give you the tightest hug recorded in history, you see the nostrils flare. Now, you see the anger in her eyes! There is a way to draw forth the angel again, but it can only be done with a smile. Beckon her to join you and kiss her tiny forehead!
Being adopted by three year old girls is Awesome 🙂
