I wrote this a couple of weeks ago as a tool to remember the feeling of warmth that this event generated.
I collected the pink princess from daycare earlier than normal today. It was afternoon rest time and she was still asleep when I arrived. I knelt down and kissed her shoulder above the plaster and her eyes fluttered. I kissed her cheek and she turned towards me, not yet recognising me as she slowly woke. I whispered "Hey princess". Her eyes lit up and she wrapped both arms around me.
If you need more than that facial expression and that hug to be happy you are just plain greedy.
Simplicity is grand.
