i always want to remember...
the day i picked her up from preschool and she introduced me to her friend 'maggot'. i did everything humanly possible to react like a grown up. if that's even possible. the teacher gently rephrased her name. it's maddix.
the way she will stop and look at me. and tell me she misses daddy.
the way nizzy pounds his feet in his crib. right above our bedroom. and the day ryan said... 'he's like Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories.' and i laughed so hard i cried.
the way he convinces most every female in trader joe's to stop and talk to him. and then gets all shy and puts his head down.
the sound of them laughing together in the backseat. in the bathtub. on the floor with ryan.
