Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

He's awake! It's time for smooches.

by Wench on March 21, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Best part of every day. He wakes up and starts talking to himself. I have no idea what he's saying, but it's very exciting to him. I think about the little fat cheeks and the round tummy that are in there waiting to be kissed, the mini-vocal chords making those sweet little chirping noises. I think about the adventures he's going on in his mind and how everything in this world is still interesting to him.

Eventually, he starts to call for me and I get him up and we start our day together. Our day always starts with kisses. It's the best.
