Morning Hugs

Sleeping soundly, until I feel someone watching me.  I turn over and open my eyes. There stands Tony with a tired grin on his face. I pull back the sheet and in he crawls, snuggling next to me.

"Gramma..."

"What Tony?"

"I love you."

"I love you too."

We cuddle a bit more and I just enjoy the morning. Tony, who asks a million questions a day, starts in (I'm sure so he can make his quota of questions).

"Gramma, can I play golf?"
"Gramma, can we go swimming today?"
"Gramma, where are your glasses?"
"Gramma, what's that noise?"

It's Chloe, shaking herself awake. I open the bedroom door and in she flies, jumping on top of Tony and I, devouring us with her kisses. Giggles ensue. And then we all settle down for a few more minutes of morning hugs.
