So, tonite is Saturday nite. Normally I come downstairs and watch tv in the bedroom on Saturday nites. I took a quick shower, come out, and Risa is lying underneath the covers! She rarely comes downstairs, when she does, she never lies on the bed. Curious, I laid down with her and she didn't bolt - she kept laying there with me! Making great eye contact, smiling, etc. She is nine years old and until today, I have never gotten her to lay down with me like that...ever! So, that was cool.

I go upstairs after she's asleep, go into the bathroom - she had a box of enemas out (we've been having major constipation issues lately!) they were lined up on the edge of the tub, caps off. Almost like she was getting ready to dump them, lol!

I don't know what to attribute this too, but am very happy about my new Saturday nite buddy! ;)

Aww, that's so sweet :) I don't blame her for wanting to throw out the enemas, that's funny!

I'm so happy you had that wonderful moment with your daughter.
