After all the Fourth of July hype of the slip 'n slide, swimming, elevator rides, lunch, and a way-too-short-for-mom nap in the car seat Ellie cuddled up to Brad with binky and blankie while we watched the Tour. She kept still for a solid half hour or so. A rare occasion, you could imagine, for a perpetually busy and curious little toddler. Ellie would pat his hand softly with one hand and twirl her hair with the other. A beautiful sweet moment, forever imprinted in my mind. I think Brad's heart grew three sizes that day. There's something to be said about being an aunt or an uncle that allows for a little reprieve for mom or dad and where there's no guilt in sneaking extra bites of ice cream from the kitchen.
I do my very best on this blog to make us look perfect and insanely happy in every way. Which, indeed we are. However, you should also know that sometimes we disagree, we don't get everything we want or everything we pray for, I'm not a size 2, and our sink leaks. Amid all the craziness every day brings, we live each knowing that life is fair, it's just not over yet.
