Sunday Scribblings "Skin"
I had the best weekend ever getting to see my daughter who came down for the weekend. She has the most beautiful skin and one of my favorite 'Moma' things to do, is to smell her and touch her. She was in her jams last night and I came up from behind her and wrapped my arms around her and buried my face into the back of her hair and neck. I took a big deep breath and smelled the little girl that used to be super glued to my side. I took another one and just one more before I let go of her. And I said, "I'll never get tired of that smell" and I meant it. Each time, my mind floods with memories, a fast speed time line of her life, which is filled with many kisses, night time cuddles and various girlie moments that involved bows, dresses, dolls, bathtime and constant affirming love.
And here's a funny thing about the fingerprint like nature of each persons scent, my daughter and my lil sis's smell is just alike. Especially their heads. They share similar physical attributes, mannerisms, likes, dislikes and the way they smell. It's almost freakish because when you spend time with one, you are constantly reminded of the other :) which is never a bad thing. They share a special bond that I am proud of and my nose actually misses them both on a regular basis, with them living some distance from me. How lucky am I? Two of the most beloved people in my life share the same body odor...geez, a nose can only take so much! ;)
