Mind trick

I call to Erin to get her dressed this morning. She begins to walk into the room, and I sing out, "Runny bunny, runny bunny, run, run, run!" She smiles and runs into my open arms. I pick her up and momentum swings her legs between mine. I scoop her and cuddle her and carry her over to the clean pile of clothes folded.

"You won't remember this tomorrow," she begins. "But for Mother's Day, I'm going to give you lots of hugs and kisses instead of a card."

"Ok," I smile. But I don't think I will forget.
