Papa Bear FTW!
When you've done it all by yourself from start to finish for four years, sharing responsibility and love suddenly feels odd. I've never experienced it so I don't know how it's supposed to work. I'm keeping a mental tally, but we all know I'll never be able to keep up.
Because Papa Bear is the best bed-timer, player, tooth brusher, butt changer, manner teacher, grammar teacher, coffee maker, dish doer, driver, provider, supporter and overall fun and thoughtful person for all living creatures in the house. And he exhibits this super power, literally on an hourly basis, so as nauseous as I'm making you right now, I'm holding back.
Holding back from telling you about making me a happy mixed cd, romantic evenings of wine at Times Ten Cellar, picking up my son and putting him to bed because I have some unidentified immobilizing pain, cleaning up dog messes and trash can spills without complaint and talking about a present for Penn. And.....etc.
As human beings we are sometimes plagued with doubts about our journey through life. Love, career, money, house, friends......all the things you'd quiz your local psychic lady about.
I haven't a single doubt about anything that matters. I am overwhelmed with goodness.
