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!
