Thing 2 was sitting in my lap, squirming happily and snuggling like a puppy. She looks up and me and says "Some people might look at your face and think it doesn't look so good... but when I look at you, all I see is the LOVE." She follows this up with a big happy loving smile and more happy snuggling.
Hmmm... here's a photo of Thing 2's 2nd birthday. Long ago, I know.
