At Bella’s bedtime prayers Dom sits on the ottoman while I sit in the rocking chair with Bella in my lap. Recently I’ve been putting my swollen feet up on Dom’s lap and he’s been rubbing them. Last night and again tonight as soon as I put my feet up Bella tugged away the blanket on her lap to reveal her own pajama-clad feet. “Ouch, feet hurt.” she declared, thrusting them in her father’s direction. And so Dom took them in his hands and rubbed them.
