Then some nephews came for lunch.
This one is so cute and bald, sometimes I call him Mr. Luminous. It suits him. He definitely lights up a room.
Tim, a turd? Impossible, you say?
Not so much.
We called home and told him to call t.c. back this instant and apologize and act like a normal person.
Ten years ago today? Yes it was--one of the best, happiest days of my entire life.
All surprises, all perfection.
Tim was born by surprise in the bathtub, not underwater, but came flying out over the water, long arms and legs, moro reflex, hands like tiny starfish. All the baby blankets and stuff were in our room, so Jay grabbed the first blanket he could find to tuck around him--Kari's poodle blanky from the kids' bed.
And then I carried him down the hall, and flopped down in our bed and Jay covered us up with a silky Barbie sleeping bag.
Ridiculous. Impromptu. Fine.
Ten years of you, Timmy. Ten years!
Tim? Thank you for coming to this family and being ours. The whole family is lucky having you in it.
Something about you being here makes everything just right.
love forever, Mom and Dad and everybody.
