it's 7ish in the morning.
Carter is off to bed. Asheley & the babe are still in bed. Doug has chelloed off to his new job at the paper mill and here Maya & I sit watching Sesame Street.
Breakfast has been had and I'm just awaiting the moment Asheley comes down and says, "Let's make some coffee."
Watching Maya is amazing. I wonder if she knows how much she rolls around from one side of her belly to the next. How often she lifts her legs in the air and scratched her tenderonies. How often she reaches into the sky as though it was hers to control.
What happened just moments ago though trumped all the cuteness that has ever seeped from her skin & personality.
Just moments ago, as I was watching her eat her bagel and watch T.V. I witnessed her bend over in her kiddie-sized chair and let out the absolute longest toot I have ever heard. What followed though - unbelievable!
Maya, my precious god-daughter stood up,
put her face to the chair
and took a big ole' sniff of her own fart up into her nostrils.
Big ole' sniff of her own omitted gas.
She is absolutely amazing & I can't say I wouldn't have done the same if I didn't know the median of cultural norms. Oh to be a kid again.
