I was just getting sleepy & wrapping up for the evening when I heard that sound. That sound every set of mom ears is uniquely tuned into-- the cry of a kid. In a heartbeat, I'm wide awake & running upstairs. James had had a nightmare. He was crying & calling my name when I came into his room. He didn't want to tell me what the dream was; I'm not even sure he knew, so I just laid him down & laid down with him. Within a minute or two, he was asleep again.
I wish that every fear he ever had for his whole life could be solved that easily. Alas, life is not that simple, but any time my presence can comfort my child & solve his or her problem, man, I'm there. There is no greater feeling than kissing away your child's worries, & I'm so grateful whenever I can. Sleep be darned :)

I'm so grateful to have you here with me. I LOVE being a mom, but I'm trying to still be "me" while being a mom, & this blog has been a tool for me to figure that out. Hopefully it's that for you, as well. I look forward to hearing from you so that I can make this blog meaningful for you. Thanks for being here!
