It's not me, it's you

As I was tucking Liel into bed tonight, I noticed that she didn't look too happy.

"What's up, sweetheart?", I asked.

"Nothing, mommy. I'm just tired and annoyed."

"Oh", I said. "Well, I'll just give you your goodnight kiss."

"No!", she said, "I don't want you to go, mommy! I want you to be with me!"

"Ok", I said, sitting down and feeling secretly pleased that my presence was so comforting and desirable. I gave her a kiss on the forehead. "You know I love you always, even when you're tired and annoyed."

"You don't understand", Liel said, looking up at me, "I'm annoyed at you."

Hot little post. Hot little girl. How BEAUTIFUL that she could say that to you! And, it is you, that made that possible. Seems like I remember you once saying something even a bit stronger, to me.
Love, Dad :)
