July Fourth

She peers at me from under thick eyelashes, rubbing away the sleep, all sweet and warm.

“Today is a special day!” I say to her. “Can you tell me what it is?”

She thinks for a moment, stretching til her belly pops out from under her jammy top.

“Americans’ birthday?” she replies.

“Yes!” I say.

“Should we get Americans a LalaLoopsy treehouse like mine?” she asks eagerly.

“Nah,” I reply. “We’ll just celebrate. We have TWO parties today!”

And that’s how our July Fourth began. Lily and me. And all the Americans.

We had a blast today. Pool, grilled hot dogs for lunch, grilled hamburgers for dinner, sparklers with neighbors in the cul-de-sac. Perfection.

Hope your “Americans’ Birthday” was awesome.
