I spent most of the day cranky and crusty. Dealing with individuals who judge before inquiring, accuse before investigating and make false assumptions before knowing can quickly irritate and annoy me.
I went home cranky and crusty. I tried to not let the day's events affect my evening with Miss B. It's bad enough that most of my energy and thoughts were devoted to such stupidity during the day that my time with my daughter shouldn't be sacrificed either. I found the enthusiasm to hide with Miss B under the covers while Dada came to find us. I found the spark needed to chase her around the kitchen. But, thoughts of the day still crept in to my head. I was beginning to think that the only deterrent would be alcohol. I was wrong.
When Miss B goes to sleep for the night, she usually gives me a big, full body hug. Tonight, she did exactly that. But immediately after, she grabbed my face and planted one big kiss on my lips! I was so touched. It was just what I needed. Any thoughts of my awful day vanished instantly. Now, I had a much better thought that replaced all the crankiness and crustiness.
How can someone so little be so grand?
