Yesterday, A and I went on our first “alone” date since e’s arrival. My mom and dad watched him and boom and took wonderful care of them while we ate breakfast at lunchtime and spoke of plans big and small and relished in the here, the now, this blessed life.
We came home to a sweet babe who had a wonderful time with his grandparents, yet missed us terribly. He fell asleep once we returned, and sobbed through his dreams.
And so it is, this life: the highest highs, the lowest lows, and some pretty wonderful in betweens. Honey, salt, and water.
