I took Collin out for a backyard adventure. Well, as much adventure that can be had in our small yard. It also needs a ton of work. Our lawn furniture cushions need replacing, concrete needs staining, grass needs watering, trees need trimming, tools need putting away. It's such an unorganized mess, but it's there. Begging for a kid to play in it. So we did.

At Maria's wedding, I found myself crying during a moment that previously never held much meaning for me. The mother/son dance. You should have seen the waterworks, people. I kept thinking about the day Collin would marry the woman he loves. I hope it's madly & deeply. I hope she is someone he can never live without. Because when I dance that dance, I'll be remembering all of our dances in the backyard, splashing the rain puddles as we laugh loudly & with purpose.

My kid totally looks like a random city bum hanging out in a junkyard, but whatevs.

Think my kid looks like a bum? Did I make you laugh? Would ya mind voting?
