Answer the question – Do you see her much?

in 42 words exactly

 Hand in hand she is always by my side. Never far from reach. When I cry, she cries. If I sleep she kicks me. It would be nice to be free and crawl away. Or so I imagine.

    I hadn’t thought about it, but alone time would be impossible in this instance. I would make a lousy conjoined twin!

  2. Mike says:

    A thought provoking piece. So hard to even begin to imagine such ‘togetherness’.

  3. AZ Gringa says:

    I laughed. I probably shouldn’t have laughed…

  4. I was think “co-sleeping” with your child, until the end. Interesting!

  5. Marcy says:

    It’s interesting to think about what that would be like.

  6. Josh says:

    Hah! Nice surprise at the end; it is one of those topics I’ve always wondered at writing about and never got around to myself.

    Very tough to think and (write!) from that perspective. Handled very well, Sue!

    “Or so I imagine.” Nice touch, that. Very cool take on the prompt – I would never have thought of this! Thanks for linking it up.

  9. I too was thinking of a very needy child until the end.

  10. Gina says:

    That is some kind of togetherness!

  11. M. L. Sexton says:

    I kind of felt where it was going before I got to the end. This was nice.
