Apr 2013 – Mountain man

As we were putting the Cool Bros to bed last night, my heart was full but a little heavy. It would be the last night that Cool Newbie would be a two-year-old.

He’s a chatty, cheery toddler who’s not to shy to bless me with an “I love you, Daddy.” Just five minutes ago, as I was pulling him out of the car when he and Cool Mum got back from the park, he said in his nasal, raspy tone, “I’m so glad to see you! I missed you.”

The shields are down, Captain! We’ve been hit! This kid knows how to pinpoint your heart and leave it in a puddle on the floor.  Continue reading

My funny and cool and completely inspirational husband just had his birthday. Since I don’t have a good track record with baking things, I wrote a poem instead.

Happy Birthday, Cool Dad! I wrote this to tell the world how amazing you are!

If it weren’t for you
I’d be a nun
Wearing my hair
In a little bun

Who would’ve wanted
This foolish girl
Who had no direction
And an unruly curl

The day we met
I knew not my dreams
You showed me the way
By following yours, it seems

I clearly remember
The day you asked me mine
I said I didn’t know
I thought life was fine

A few years later
Stepped out of a cab
We had the same dream
That would require two to grab

He led us together
To at all costs chase love
We’ll do it together
Til we both go above

And if you went first
You know I would say
There is no one else
I will follow our way

One and only
Who took me in for worse or better
On this day you were born
And I will thank God forever!
