Bring me somewhere where there is a baby present & I'm likely holding the infant, or longing too.

And this stage in life?
I simply love this stage in life too -
With our son just wrapping up his first school year in the big ~K~, I cannot get enough of his writing.

'I am sad tat my dog died'
I love love love these little people that we have created.
I love their hearts and their minds and their spirits. I love seeing them learn and grow, even if sometimes, we hurt.
