A moment

“Dess!” she says imperiously, standing in her diaper this morning and pointing  at the closet.

“Boo,” she shouts delightedly, eyes twinkling as her head emerges from the folds of the little dress I am putting on her.

I laugh. “Oh, you look soooo pretty!” I exclaim, straightening the dress as she runs off.

“Ta-da!” she shouts to her brothers as she enters the living room, primed for her daily dose of male adulation.   They, of course, happily comply with her expectations.

 After all, how could they resist?
