Hot Toddy and I are standing in the kitchen talking and Riley whizzes by. He reaches out and snatches her, pulling her into a hug.
"How did you get so cute?" He asks, leaning down and kissing the top of her head.
She smiles and takes in his embrace. Riley seldom thinks to offer affection, but we're blessed that she never refuses ours.
"I think when I sleep at night, a cute machine comes in and makes me cute."
Todd and I crack up.
"You think so?" he asks.
She glances up toward the ceiling to the left, thinking, puts her pointer finger to her temple.
"Maybe?" she ponders out loud.
