Hannah is my little tea-making assistant each day. She rides on my hip while I fix myself a drink, pointing out the essentials with enthusiasm.
Tea! Kettle! Milk! Sugar!
I hold out the canister, she grabs a tea bag, and drops it into the empty mug for me. She then declares, Hot!, when I add the steaming water.
But yesterday after I added my milk and sugar, she softly said,
Bye bye milk. Bye bye sugar.
And gosh was it sweet. It was so sweet.
