When Adorably Cute Nieces Attack
The ACN is here for the weekend. YAY! She is going home tomorrow. POOOOOOOP!
When The ACN wakes up in the morning, she likes to go visiting beds. If it is early enough, and if you do it quickly enough, she’ll cuddle up next to you and go back to sleep. If you are clumsy, she’ll wake up fully and act like a silly and refuse to let you go back to sleep.
This morning she was a silly.
And this is what I see any time Uncle Pete stubs his toe, or, you know, lops off a finger with a bread knife.
But, it is hard to get mad at someone so cute. This morning, when we were snuggling, she wanted me to get up. So, I asked, “Doesn’t Uncle Pete look all cozy?” She said, “Yeeeeah.” Then she turned her head and kissed me on the cheek. I opened my eyes and said, “Awwwww. Thanks, little poodle.” She faced forward again. I closed my eyes.
And she elbowed me square in the nose.
