Hey Jude

I’m sitting on the floor, cross legged, brushing the girls hair. 

Maggie is in front of me. 

Juli is behind me, on my back with her arms wrapped around my neck. 

We are listening to the Beatles’ song “Hey Jude” (a song we sing to Juli a lot because we call her Jude). And Juli is swaying back and forth singing “Na na na nana na na” in my ear. 

And she giggles every time she hears McCartney belt out her name.
