365 :: Practice Round 3

up

I am sitting on the couch with a baby asleep in my lap (do we sense a theme here?).  Ellen is climbing up onto the table and then peering into the lamp.  “Mama, there are a bunch of dead flies and ladybugs in here.”

“Ellen please get down,” I respond automatically.  But then, “No, wait.  Actually, stay up there.”  I reach across the chest in front of the couch for the camera.  Fortunetly, it is within arm’s reach.

“Mama, why are you taking a picture of me?”

“Because I like you up there.  Because I like you.  I like the things you do.  I like the things you say.”  Did I say those things?  I wish I would have.
