What I really care about tonight is how much I love talking to my seven year old. He is completely curious about everything under the sun. He can listen to my answers, follow them up with even deeper questions, and then make quirky jokes based on his newly added knowledge (which is awesome that he still believes what I tell him is Truth). He studies his Dad and mimics his moves (Be still my heart!), and he still calls me “Mommy”.
What’s not to love?
Oh, plus we spent years trying to make a person and then we finally did and then he turns out to be the most amazing kid I have ever met.
No wonder I believe so fully in God and Goodness and the importance of Waiting in Hopeful Wonder for whatever comes next.
