One evening not so long ago, the nieces and the nephew stayed at my house. As I was tucking the youngest two in bed, little b decided the jammies she packed were too hot. I gave her a freshly laundered t-shirt to wear. Her response was, "This smells so good. It smells like you."
Since then, I can't do laundry without thinking about my little b. Those same smells of laundry detergent and fabric softner that made her think of me now makes me think of a spunky little girl who can torment her siblings, who can wear out the adult around her, who can think way out side the box, and who can melt your heart with a smile.
No one loves you like I do, little b! No one ever will.
