              the issues we have together are bc we need to work out our own shit. he refuses to work out his and too often misrepresents me. he says i haven't changed. he makes me feel like my work is an impostion on our lives. of course, he hasn't had a job in 8 years, and since we have enough money, i said fine, help with the kids and house and paint (he's an artist). but he doesn't appreciate that at all. I don't think many wives are that cool about things like this. I dunno. I feel like this stuff should be surmountable. so why isn't it? Sorry. Didn't meant to unload like that. It just kind of happened.

    Hi Son! When your sister was born, I couldn't imagine that my heart could grow any bigger.She filled our lives with so much zest and joy! How could there be room in my ticker for more love? But two years ago, you, my delicious son, showed me how. You bring syrupy sweetness and daily giggles to our lives -- and you sure know how to throw things!! But more powerful than your arm is your ability to complete a family and to fill your Momma's heart to the tippy top. Thank you, Son, for being YOU -- we can't wait to see all the amazing things you have in store for our adventurous life together! Love Mom and Dad
