Daddy's away right now and my big ol' bed is feeling empty. So I let Big sleep with me the other night. He climbed right in and got in my pocket. You know the pocket right? We all have a pocket. He fits right in there. Still.
After a while, I turned over. He did too. Then he spread his skinny little body out all over the place. This is the same little body that used to take up hardly any space at all. Now it takes up almost the whole bed.
After another little while, he wrapped his arms around me. Putting me in his pocket. I have spent so many nights and naps holding Big. Making him feel safe and warm. For the first time in his life, he held me the other night and returned the favor.
