Me: Bug, what’s your favorite thing to do?
Bug: Snuggle with you (said while she’s watching YouTube kids and telling it to search for something I didn’t quite catch, she’s learned how to search on YouTube kids via the voice search function – I didn’t even know there was a voice search function on YouTube kids until this instance)
Me: No, I mean like singing, clogging, hiking, reading, or something like that.
Bug: No, I really just like being with you and snuggling while we watch TV at night or when you sit close to me at the restaurant (this was after we had eaten at a Mexican restaurant before Church on a Wednesday night and she was buried in the iPad).
This is a wake up call for me. It’s me she needs. Nothing else. Just time. Just attention. Just me.
