One of those times is when one of them sidles up next to me on the couch and asks me to scratch their back. I am powerless against their charms. 99.9% of the time I say yes, and forego anything else that is calling for my attention. Laundry? Can wait. Dinner? That's what Papa John's is for.
Maybe the reason I can't resist them because most of the time they are whirling dervishes of ADHD, but when my hand is on their backs, they are so calm. And to me, it is a little slice of heaven.
I took the Brown-Eyed Dervishes to the park yesterday, and I got one shot of them sitting there posing for me.
|Can you tell they are just humoring me?|
I was exhausted just trying to keep up with them...
I seriously didn't get more than the one shot of them being still.
But it was fun. And sometimes, that's all that matters.
