Uh Huh

She sat next to me. Sponge Bob was trying to ride a sea horse. In her arms, she cuddled a soft, stuffed lamb.

"Where did you get your lamb?" I asked trying to draw her into conversation.

"From Heather," she replied.

Sponge Bob didn't stop for the conversation or allow Gabby to focus on her Grams sitting next to her.

"Sure is cute."

"I know."

I laid my hand on her leg. A small hand sneaked beneath my own. Sponge Bob just had his spatula eaten by the sea horse.

"Isn't that silly," she commented.

"Uh huh," I replied.

"I change her earrings with the seasons," Gabby commented.

"Oh, on your lamb?" I asked.

"Uh huh," she replied.

"Hm," I added. "They're very pretty."

"Uh huh. They're green."

Sponge Bob sent his sea horse away. Gabby grabbed her coat and headed out the door to school. She stopped for a moment to give me a kiss.

"Love you, Honey," I said.

"Love you, too," she replied

Uh huh, I think my day is off to a good start.
