My husband drives me batty, yet somehow I still love him (even after he steals the covers on a cold night.). He is the one person I can genuinely see forever with.
One of our children has special needs and the other child is all the needy. We love them without hesitation. The only time either of us thinks of committing ourselves is during their fights and fits, which is where I chalk it up to a win and call it a day.
Bear has come so far. He can sit independently, crawl, maneuver his wheel chair on his own, and uses sign language. All of which are things he could not do even just 2 years ago.
Zo is a complete Diva. She can speak using sentences, is working on her ABC's (All the letters are B's and E's), twirls like no tomorrow, calls me Daddy, and loves to dance.
I'm not as skinny as I once was, but that's okay. It's a small price to pay for eating delicious foods and drinking the occasional wines. And I'm thankful for the changes my body made to accommodate the growing of my wee ones.
We have come so far, this little family of mine.
And if this is what I have to look back on every year I'll take it because I am ever so thankful.
Happy national leftover day!
