such sweet sorrow

Kyle, hovering near Elise while I hold her: I always give Lisey a kiss before I leave her.

Me: Is that right?

Kyle: Yeah. And sometimes I kiss her nose.

(He kisses her nose.)

Me: That's nice, sweetheart.

Kyle: I like to hold her hand too...

Me: Aha.

Kyle, in a voice her reserves only for his sister: Hi, Lisey-piece! Hi!

Me: You love your baby sister, huh?

Kyle: Yeah.

Me: I'm glad to hear it!

Kyle: So I always give her a kiss before I leave. And I always tell her goodbye. Goodbye, Lisey! Goodbye! I'm going to the other room now...
