Tom took the kids camping this weekend. I was under the weather so I stayed home. When they came home E was the first to come and hug me and load me up with stories about the campground. He left the room and came back with something hidden behind him. He told me all about A giving him money so he could play the machine with the claw so you could get a stuffed animal. He then pulled out a stuffed sting ray and said that he had won this just for me. He handed it to me and beamed when I thanked him and hugged him. A little while later he wrote 'I love you' on the DS and showed it to me. I didn't let him see me cry.
This is the stuff that carries me through the hard days with him. He is beautiful and hilarious and brilliant. He's so amazing. I'm so blessed.
