The other day as I was resting on Gem’s bed, I opened my eyes to two little faces singing, “Shy Shyyy! Shy Shyyy!” Hush hush, eye to eye? I had no idea what they were talking about. And when I saw them look at each other and giggle, I realized it was an inside joke. They boxed me out. What struck me was how these two girls now have a real relationship, one of which I am no longer a part. To celebrate that (and yes, to also prepare for their moving into the same room,) we’ve been doing all activities, even the smallest ones, together. Below, one of our favorite evening rituals: pomegranate juice star wands, which we “tuck into bed” (yup, the freezer) and wake up to the next morning. Hush, huuuuusssshhhhhh!
