Owen woke up early this morning, and surprisingly allowed me to climb into bed with him rather than kicking me because I am not Daddy, and we spend 15 minutes talking about dreams and puppies and Halloween and fear and crying and school (kindergarten now, oh my) and weekends and zombies and back to puppies and that 15 minutes is why it is worth it to have children.
This afternoon, Mia and I spent 15 minutes talking about how surprisingly much she knows about cancer (third grade, oh my) and the things we might do to help a neighbor through such a hard time and that 15 minutes is why it is worth it to have children.
