1.This morning I sat down on Theo's bed and gently pet him awake. His eyes opened, blinking and groggy, and settled on me. He immediately held out his arms and pulled me in for a hug.
The rest of the morning went downhill from there (today he decided "No schoolbus. I want stay.") But I keep the mental picture of his long, skinny arms in Mets-covered sleeves and choose to ignore the tantrum that stemmed from my attempt to help him put his socks on since we were running late.
2. On Sunday morning Joe let his preggo wife sleep in. When I woke up, I lay in bed a while playing my Nintendo DS, with Bruce's front paws on my face as he lay next to me, purring.
I love all my kids.
