I stood at the kitchen island, pouring my morning coffee when Isabelle said, “Mommy, look at us.”
I looked up and discovered Isabelle and Ari hugging on his overstuffed chair.
“Awww! You two are so sweet. How much do you love your brother?” I asked Isabelle.
She ignored my question and went back to hugging Ari. So, I went back to pouring my coffee.
A minute or so later, Isabelle asked me, “How far away is the sun?”
“Millions of miles away,” I replied.
“How far is it from the sun back to here?” She asked.
“It’s millions of miles back to Earth,” I replied. (Who does she think I am? NASA? A Google Search Engine?)
She looked at me with the sincerest expression and said, “Well, that’s how much I love Ari. I love him to the sun and back.”
