I wasn't here for this, but apparently Sophia was talking to Fiona and she said that some girls told her that God made them. She got this look on her face as if to say, "isn't that the craziest thing you've ever heard?". Then she said, "I told them it wasn't true; my mommy made me."

The first day of school went well for Fiona and it went well for Sophia, except for the part where I came for lunch to help and she had a hard time with me leaving. That was painful. They read a book the first week of school called The Kissing Hand, by Audrey Penn. When I left the cafeteria, Sophia was inconsolable and I was barely holding it together. Sophia's teacher told her I would kiss the palm of Sophia's hand so she could have my kiss, and Sophia would kiss the palm of my hand so I would have hers.

Two weeks later, her teacher tells me that Sophia will be sitting in class, working, and occasionally brings the palm of her hand to her cheek for my kiss.
