I tuck him into bed, and in those first still moments of the day, he tells me,
"You know when we're driving, or when I'm outside? There's music out there.
Not like guitar music. But like...in the wind.
That's why I like being out there. There's music that the sounds out there make.
If you listen, you can hear it."
Oh, buddy...I want to hear it, too.
Tonight, we put the two little boys to bed and let O stay up with us for a while. The little brothers snoozed away as John finished up in the kitchen and I sent a quick email to our babysitter.
O wandered from one room to the next.
I feel like I'm standing in the middle of nowhere.
That's funny. Why?
I don't know, I'm just lonely.
Something feels a little off for them when they're apart.
Every Friday my friend Lee posts conversations she's had with her kids, and she invites her friends to share their stories, too. (So I'm linking up today.)
Sometimes the stories are funny, and other times, like today, she touches on something that grips your heart a little tighter. Go check her out, she writes a blog called Moms Without Blogs, because she's cool like that. Her philosophy is to keep it real, to show that as moms, we don't have it all together all the time, but that that's OK. ("Being a supermom is simply a state of mind.") She's the real deal, folks.
And, I want to thank Heather and Cybil for giving my blog a little shout-out over on their blogs. I appreciate the kind words, and I'm so glad to know you've enjoyed reading what I write. Really, it means a lot. So thank you.
