We know how to pull it together in the knick of time, but there are days like today where there is nothing better than a good batch of tears. Uncle Brant, it is just the girl in us, you will never understand. Olivia has had three rotations of sobbing and a time of cradling in my arms while being rocked back into "it's okay" world. I am not sure what is going on around here. Snuggles, hugs, kisses, motivational speeches, referee, teacher,nurse, cook, maid and techno-savy chick...Whew, what a day. It is just one in this life of ours.
So with the gift giving, cookie baking, carol singing, present wrapping, book reading, advent opening times, take time for a few tears, if that is what will work for you.
