Em fell out of bed last night. I woke up to hear her crying and MQD woke at the same time. She hasn’t woken up crying in ages, at least six months… but when he was first spending the night he’d wake me when she cried. Last night? His feet hit the floor faster than mine. I ran up the stairs behind him. I got to her bedroom a millisecond behind him to see her arms wrapped around his neck, her legs around his torso and he was swaying back and forth, the way only parents do… She cried. He “Shhh”ed. I waited for the arms outstretched, for the “Moooommmm…” It didn’t come. Bittersweet.

Gimme some love!! Please?
