Oh, my reasons. You are so beautiful. You make me laugh. You make me tired. I've had a wonderful week with all of you. We've killed several boxes of tissues; we've snuggled five across; we've welcomed Daddy home from work in party fashion.
Some of you have been sick. Not telling who, but the initials are Maxwell David. Mommy hopes that yellow goo coming from your left ear will abate soon. I know it hurts, baby. You have been so strong.
My journal is so behind. My diet is on the back burner. My job is changing. And I'm holding on.
I'm holding on to Daddy and to you and to dreams. All is well on this icy January eve. All I ever have to be is what He made me.
And, right now, I'm a very tired mommy aching for her bed.
Good night, loves.
