If you're a parent, you know how dangerous this is. There isn't a child in the world who doesn't look wholly innocent and downright scrumptious when he sleeps. When my son is asleep, I have a moment to drink him in. During the day he's so loud, so noisy -- the child is always making noise: singing loudly, talking loudly, laughing loudly -- that I can't hear myself think. I don't have a chance to drink him in.
But at night I take my moments, and last night I did. Which of course made me well up with emotion knowing that he and I will no longer have our days together.
So there. I regressed. I miss him already.
Shoot. Thought I got off scot free with that one.
