{the silence of acknowledgement}

the other day on the way into swim practice.... 

me: chloe i love that you love to hold my hand still.

chloe: i'll always love to hold your hand.

me: that's sweet. but you won't. not when you get bigger.

chloe: yes. i will. i love you.

me: i love you too but when you're older you'll worry about your friends seeing us holding hands and it not being cool.

chloe: no i won't!

me: yes you will. and then you'll worry about boys seeing it too.

chloe: ::silence::

me: chloe?

chloe: ::silence::

me: you're not arguing anymore.

chloe: no. i'm not.

at least she admitted it. but i do hope that these days last a very long time.
