Being Mimi

me and emilio

Friday night I was helping Emilio take off his clothes for his bath, kneeling next to him by the tub.  “Take off your glasses,” he said to me.  “I want to look into your eyes.”  I took off my glasses and he moved his face closer to mine.  “What color do they call your eyes?” he asked and put his face up to mine, looking directly into my eyes.  “Blue,” I said, “Everyone here in the house right now has blue eyes.”  “Oh,” he said, continuing to look at me from an inch away.

This from a toddler, a few months over 2.
