A New Pair of Sex

Often in the mornings, Brian will bring Paisley into our bed if I am still asleep. Most days she proceeds to poke me, prod me, yell "Wake up Mama!" into my face and generally bug me until I get out of bed. On lucky days, she will lie beside me and cuddle with me for awhile. I wake slowly but happy to have her next to me. We chat, she kisses me and we sing or play little word games. Yesterday, Brian put her on his side of the bed and when I rolled over to look at her sweet angelic face, she said "I need some sex Mama."

Thinking I might still be half asleep and clearly mishearing her, I said: "What!?"

"I need some sex right now Mama!"

I didn't even know what to say. I was thinking to myself "How does she know what that is? Where did she hear that? What am I supposed to say to that!?"
Then she clarified. "Mama, my feet are like ice. I need some sex!"

Oh. Socks. No problem.
