Should I start with the fact that my sons went to bed at 11:30 last night on a school night? Or that I went to bed at 12:30 and got up at 6?
No. I shall start out with that we spent a wonderful evening with cousins and family, wine and raviolis and pineapple upside down cake that was amazing. Hugs and kisses and fingers flying with Sign Language and a cousin that would not cut me any slack and made me finger spell for practice. Practicing with a Deaf person is intimidating at best but she wanted to not test me but let me see my stuff. I need more studying but I held my own.
Cats and dogs and stories told around the table late into the evening. This is Dom's family and they are mine now too. These cousins on the couch, blood thicker than water. Laughs and fights, games and secrets. A late night. Tired boys today but so worth it. That is what matters most to me.
