Had To Be Said...

My second month's article for Still Standing Magazine published today.

It was not what I originally wrote.  I originally wrote about how I was SO.SO.SO.SO mad at time.

Mad because I feel like it mocks me and steals from me and taunts me and burdens me and drags for me simultaneously.

But in the back of my head, this just kept nagging.

"This is different."
"This is eating at you."
"This could be ugly if you don't get it under control."

"You need to be honest about this."

So, I was.

I talked to John and I was.

One more thing...How much do I ADORE this baby boy?

I tried to get him to nap with me this afternoon for over an hour.  He laughed.  He giggled.  He cackled.  He played peek-a-boo.  He was as cute as cute could be.

But he didn't sleep.

Until this evening after playing in the tidal pools on the beach before dinner.  He was zonked and took a nice nap in Mommy's arms.  Those are more and more rare these days, as he turns into a big boy.

I happily and my boy and the ocean.
