Bottomless pit

Erin is eating non-stop this morning.

"How can you still be hungry?" I ask. "Where is there room left in your belly for more? You must be growing!"

She beams. She loves the idea of being a big girl.

"Don't grow so fast! I want you to be my baby," I tell her.

"But Mommy," she says all seriously, "I will still be with you. And even when I'm grown up, I will still love you."

I pull her into my lap and she spills over all arms and legs, giggles met with mommy kisses rapid-fire over her head. This love, I don't think I could ever feel full.
