I have been looking my children in the eyes lately. And it’s wonderful.
(Jessica took this photo – and tonight on our way home from dinner at our friends’ house while the car was quiet – like a mouse she speaks up and says “When I grow up I’m gonna be a teacher!” and thats when it hit me all over again … My God, she’s one of a kind. And she’s mine. And I’m aware that you all feel something like this for your own kid, and thats awesome – you should – but Jessica, she’s like a secret waiting to scream and a star on the verge of shooting through the night sky. She’s beautiful. Beautifully carefree and full of dreams. Of teaching. I cannot wait to see what she does.)
