nathan and i have been pretty busy lately with responsibilities outside our home. our three oldest seem to be adapting okay to us being gone a little more often, but clara is struggling a little bit. so, last night after returning from a meeting, we decided to bring clara in to sleep with us.
she had already been in bed for a while at this point, but i gently rubbed her back and loved on her until she was awake enough to interact a little bit.
once she was awake and functioning, i asked her to give me a love. without even a moments hesitation she simply replied, "no, you stink".
what a little turkey!
