Today we went to Montgomery to visit Granny Jane and Grandma. Neal asked Granny Jane if she had chickens in her backyard. He is practicing the art of chicken netting. He hasn't quite mastered the stealth aspect, but he's got determination down pat.

Every night at bedtime, he asks if I will lie down with him. Months of living together in a tent made each of us accustomed to the others' warmth. Some nights I snuggle with him, some I don't. Last night I wasn't going to, and then he said, "Mommy, if I were the grown up and you were grown down, and you said will you sleep with me, I would say I will sleep with you, baby." So I did. Clearly, he is skilled at the art of mommy netting.
