Watched The Wizard of Oz while listening to Dark Side of the Moon. They sort of go together, but it’s a bit of a stretch.
Watched you sit up for the first time. You did it as if you had been doing it all along.
Danced across the thin line between Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Danced to the Elmo’s World Song in my pajamas while feeding you rice cereal.
Sang karaoke in a dive bar in Washington. I do a mean Fergie (Boom, boom, boom).
Sang the wheels on the bus while driving through North Carolina till i was blue in the face. I do a mean horn on the bus (beep, beep, beep).
Walked to Charlie’s Bar for snow beers every time it snowed. Once it snowed four times in 2 weeks. Those were a good 2 weeks.
Walked back and forth across the living room every night for more weeks than I can count to soothe your colic. Those were some of the hardest weeks of my life.
Driven to Key West twice. Once for spring break, once for New Years Eve, both times with your Dad.
Driven to nowhere so that you would get a nap. Once to Belleplain State Forest, once to a neighborhood that we were considering moving to, both times with your Dad.
Listened to Britney Spears while driving a pick up truck.
Listened to the sound of you breathing while lying in bed.
Traveled to Italy and Switzerland as a senior in high school. Saw the Coliseum and the Vatican. Ate Swiss cheese.
Traveled half a mile down the street to a hospital in the middle of the night to have you. It was the longest 1/2 mile ever.
Ran through Disney’s MGM Studios to get in line to meet Soap Stars at Super Soap Weekend.
Ran through our tiny house when I heard you cry.
Saw Woodstock 99 and didn’t shower for 3 days.
Saw your face and knew it would be OK if I couldn’t shower for 3 days.
Spent too many nights at too many bars with too many beers.
Spent too much time taking too many pictures because I want to capture every moment.
Met Susan Lucci! And Josh Duhamel!
Met you and realized that nothing I had done mattered more than you .
