First thing this morning Lily climbed up into bed with me and asked if we could "cuddle for a little bit." We were lying in my bed on our sides, face to face, sharing a pillow, chatting. She told me I was her best friend, then asked me to "pinky swear that we'll be best friends forever." We immediately pinky swore as I blinked back tears. Let's be honest: I'm getting a little misty just thinking about it.
