With great big tears in her eyes, Addie tells me "Day told me to give you a hug. " She proceeds to give me a hug then breaks down crying.
I ask her, "Why are you so sad?"
"Because now I don't have a hug! Daddy gave me a hug and then told me to give you one so now I don't have a hug to keep!"
Oh sweetness. I had to explain the science behind hugs and how when someone gives you a hug it is yours to keep forever, but that it has the power to fill you up with so much love that you can give anyone else as many hugs as you want and you will never give away the one that was given to you.
With a relieved smile she wiped her tears from her face and said "Thank you, Mommy."
