she will be loved

11.23.2013

sometimes i raise my voice.

i'm not very silly. that's joe's thing.

i'm not always present.

we stay in our pajamas all day on occasion.

i say "no" a lot. she says "no" a lot.

i've cried in front of her more times than i'm proud of.

i don't give her a bath every single night.

but.

marlo knows that she is loved and extremely cherished.

which makes all of the stuff that i don't do mean absolutely nothing.

my baby knows that i love her.

we're doing pretty good.

Amen. In the grand scheme of things, that's all that matters...and what she'll always remember. You inspire me!

People who bathe their children every night have too much time on their hands... or endless amounts of energy that I can't even fathom.
