Tiny Snapshot

The boys are negotiating.

Up past bedtime.

Plaid pajama pants and white tee shirts.

A stubbly mini-mustache that has been shaved just two times.

Faded purple hair that was blue two weeks ago.

Double digits. Both of them.

I implore my brain to tuck away this tiny snapshot in time.

I blink my eyes.

Click.
