Valentine’s Day, 2001

Miranda giggles—the kind soaked in toddler glee—when she finds my paper heart. She wanders the house clutching it, screaming whenever I reach toward her. Eventually I find her heart-less, crying. I search, not noticing the pink drool on her chin.

  1. This is adorable especially since most everything finds its way into a toddler’s mouth. I loved this. The scene you captured! I can hear her giggles and see her pink drool. You put me there and I experienced it…even the drool. Pure awesome this week! ♥

      1. Sorry – I meant my Philip. Who was non-existent in 2001.
        I forgot you are very engrossed in this universe at the moment.

Tell me about it.
