Acupuncture, a new favorite past time

Emilia and I had an impromptu mommy-daughter acupuncture appointment today.  She sat in the chair next to me, ate the lunch I had packed for her that morning, chatted with Ying, listened as I recounted the most recent chapters of All the Light We Cannot See (I've been giving her a blow-by-blow account of this fabulous book, and she is always asking me 'what happened next, mama?').

And then she is quiet, as I slip off into the stillness that is acupuncture for my few remaining minutes.  Afterward as I was getting dressed and looking at my phone, I saw about four hundred and six pictures that the girl surreptisously snapped as I laid there, likely smiling to herself all the while, because her mama was none the wiser.  So if you find this terribly shocking, blame the girl, not me.
