ADDICTED FOR 15 DAYS » day six |
a child(ren) you love so much; maximoff, luna, xander, and kinney hale
Our four kids and floppy-eared basset hound stand on the hillside, a common spot because of the rope swing tied to a maple branch. Moffy raises a set of portable speakers, Bangarang by Skrillex booming. Luna, Xander, and Kinney— they wave out to us and lift up a sign together that reads: we love you!
They were a part of this surprise all along.
I laugh and cry simultaneously again. As we watch our kids, joy coating their faces, childlike wonder in their eyes, I remember every moment I spent with Lo where we said we can’t. Where we said we shouldn’t. Not people like us. This isn’t meant for us.
