All nighters

One phone call and Kimbies and I were camped out on the curb flagging the Barbie Doll car into the finish line. Snap! Snap! The papparazi at work! The first sound she made was a groan, a deep gutteral, "how on earth did these people end up to be my family?" groan.....

Eleven hours later, he's here.....Baby Boy Landon. Fair haired and perfect. I touch his cheeks and melt. Scroll my fingers through his irredescent hair....pink, yellow, orange, white....the color of the sunrise yawning....and fall in love all over again.

I read Baby Boy London. No, Landon is a far better name for such a beautiful young man.

What an absolutely perfect Mother's Day for me, for my child, and hers.....Clink! Wishing you the same wonder.....
