Last night Josie and I were talking about today being PopPop’s birthday and the race around her school. She said, “well that’s good. I’ll be running for a reason tomorrow.” I asked her what she meant and she said “I’m running in honor of PopPop.”
I told Ben that my dad always kissed me on the forehead. Every time he kisses me now he pulls me in close and kisses my forehead.
Will has given me extra squeezes and lots of “I love you mama” today.
I’m lucky to have so much love around me. After I tucked the kids in bed, I just stared at this photo at the end of our hallway. Happy birthday daddy.
