09-27-16 A Footnote

“Most of us won’t even be a footnote in history. Therefore if we do not embrace the reality of the ordinary, the immediacy of the routine, the privilege of the little bits and pieces that make up life, we’re in for a sore disappointment.” Alistair Begging

A few moments after we closed the door for bedtime, Big E wandered out to find us. Normally I tell him to go right back to bed, but this evening I allowed him to crawl into bed with me. We laid there as he told us about all his future children and what he would name them. He relished every moment of his alone time with mommy and daddy. As the middle child he gets this less than the others, so this evening we embraced it. We embraced him. You are loved sweet boy. So very loved.
