...and a follow-up.

Monday, November 11, 2013

I felt like I needed to write a follow-up to my last post because the amazing support and feedback I have received sure did make my week. It opened up new conversations with people, and at the end of the was straight up therapeutic for me. It literally felt like my heart was saying, "thank you thank you" to myself for finally getting my thoughts down on paper. (Or iPad, which it was in my case.)

Life had other plans for us, and you know was perfect. Thanks, life! Ya did good. Because when I see S wrestle J to the ground and they roll around the floor laughing, or see them purposely drool water out of their mouths at lunchtime just to get the other to laugh, I can't and don't want to imagine what it would be like without our little Pato. 

Our children's books would be in a lot better shape. Probably.

p.s: I am always surprised when someone tells me they read my blog. Can I just say thank you? It really means a lot to me. And to those who have said they like my writing... I really have you fooled. Listen. It's not good writing because I cheat. I write just how I think/speak. Which is usually disjointed, often off the cuff, and seldom coherent outside of my brain. If you can actually make sense of what I say then maybe that tells you that you may be a bit disjointed, too.

But, C reminds me often that I just need to accept compliments. So, okay. Compliment accepted. And thanks :)

I am definitely disjointed :) I'm amazed at all you do and what an amazing mom you are!

Karim Jones said...

Thanks, friend! And yes, that boy is pretty crushable. I don't even know what I'm going to do once he starts dating.

Karim Jones said...
