Auntie Loves Me

When Big pup was a baby, Angie was our default babysitter. We relied on her a lot. She lives in Little Rock so it was very convenient for us to drop him off at her apartment while WD and I went out for dinner. Or to a Travs games. Or to I-30 Speedway.

One game they would play was one where she would pretend to bite his fingers. He thought it was the funniest thing ever. He'd laugh each time she'd bring his hand up and chomp down on nothing but air, narrowly missing his little fingers. But one time, she misjudged where his fingers were and accidentally bit him. He stopped laughing immediately, gave her a betrayed, how-could-you-do-this-to-me look, and started to cry.

A few weeks ago when Angie was visiting, she told him this story.

Angie: I just wanted to tell you that I'm really sorry that happened.
Big pup: Well, that was a long time ago so I don't think you should think about that.
Angie: So we're cool now?
Big pup: Yeah.

And then they gave each other high fives. Aren't children so forgiving?

P.S. No fever, still coughing. Going to school and he's so happy!

  1. If you could photoshop my chubby cheeks away, I would appreciate it. And maybe give me an upper lip, thanks.

  2. This was 5 years ago, your cheeks aren't chubby anymore. I need photoshop 6 to fix your upper lip. I only have photoshop elements 2.0
