From June, 2010 …
About a year ago, Brooke told me that she was going to tell me a secret. I bent down and leaned in close. She put her cheek next to mine. I waited.
I eventually asked if she had something to tell me. She said, ‘Yes, a secret.’ So I waited some more.
And then she walked away.
About six months ago, Brooke told me that she was going to tell me a secret. I bent down and leaned in close. I cupped my hands around my ear and told her to say the secret into my hands.
She put her ear on them too. And we both waited.
Just like that. Ear to ear.
Last week, Brooke told Katie that she was going to tell her a secret. She leaned in close, put her ear on top of Katie’s ear and said to the space in front of both of them, ‘I love you.’
This morning, Brooke said, ‘I’m going to tell you a secret’.
I bent down and leaned in close. She cupped her hands over my ear. I said, ‘Now put your mouth on your hands and say the secret INTO my ear so that I’ll hear it.’
(right into my ear!)
‘Dad would tell me if I like shosojas.’
No idea what that means.
Don’t know what shosojas are.
p.s. Don’t tell.
Last night, we celebrated my birthday. Throughout the evening, Katie would periodically whisper into her sister’s ear.
Cause they had plans.
Just between them.
Just a little secret between sisters.
Ya know …
No big deal.
