Lilly Says II

"Mommy, I want to whisper something in your ear." (We are alone.)

"Yes, Lilly."

"I don't sleep at night." She waits for a reaction.

"Really," I say, "What do you do?"

"Play." she responds. I am not surprised.

The Truth Hurts
"Papa, why didn't you take a shower today?"

"I did take a shower, Lilly. What makes you think I didn't?"

"Your wrinkles are still on."

Kneeling by Lilly's bed, I said "amen" to our nightly prayer and asked Lilly if she wanted to pray.

"No, Mom," she said, "I only pray on Fridays."
