Wednesday, April 14th: We head North to catch a concert and hold hands in the dark, giggling like teenagers and in love with the simple act of a night out together.
Thursday, April 15th: At Lily's soccer game we find ourselves falling into sync, both a little appalled at the force with which our team slaughters the competition. I am grateful to be married to a man who is more interested in teaching good sportsmanship than WINNING THE DAMN GAME.
Friday, April 16th: I overhear the following conversation at Lily's school, "You're never going to get a girlfriend in college, you're so hideous." "I don't care, " the kid replies, "I'm just gonna do math." He's the first person I want to share this with... come to think of it, he's always the first person I want to share with.
Sunday, April 18th: He's up early (4-freaking-am) to catch a plane to Cancun for a gig. I am very quickly reminded why I am so very lucky to parent with an awesome partner.
Monday, April 19th: At a friends house for the afternoon & evening she makes a comment about how she wishes her husband was handy like mine. I offer to install her newly purchased thermostat for her and am reminded again that before I met him, I would have had NO idea how to do such a thing. He not only can do the handy things, but he enjoys teaching me how, too.
Tuesday, April 20th: I complete a survey about Planned Homebirth and it allows me to think back on Ani's birth and Mark's role in that event. I couldn't survive a contraction unless I could see his eyes. He was, is and always will be strength for me.
