Piper Jane and Aunt Melanie in June. Doing knucks.
I’ve been doing “knucks” with piperjane for a long time now. High fives too, but knucks is really something she and I have especially shared a love for. When you hold out your hand in a fist, you see her make the connection. She looks at your hand, pauses what she is doing for a half a second, smiles hugely, and reaches her little fist out to complete the knucks. Sometimes we’ll do it over and over again. Sometimes it’s a matter of business that she takes very seriously with a stern look on her face, and sometimes it’s so hilarious that she has to have a moment afterwords to laugh into her blanket.
The other day I had Pip on my lap when I lifted my arm to check my watch. Without knowing I was making a fist while looking at the time, I felt a tiny Pip fist complete the knucks against my fist. It was a moment I wished I had a blanket to laugh into.
It’s the little things in life, eh? The cute little things..
