so quietly

Dear Alice,

While you have been napping on a blanket, I have been creeping around it, clipping your fingernails and toenails. As quickly and quietly and carefully as I can.

It is impossible to do this while you are awake. You will not be still enough.

I predict that when you are so much bigger, and I am remembering times when you were so much smaller, I will think about this.
