first time for everything

 It must be documented:
The other day as we were getting the kids in their pajamas, Everett says to me,
"Mama let's pretend you're a princess so I can spin you."
It was like a heart-shaped confetti bomb just blew my head clean off.
Or like I was suddenly living inside one of those REALLY good coca-cola commercials.
I wanted to grab my ears and tell him to say it again 10 more times so that I would for sure, never ever in a million years forget the very first time he asked to spin me. Instead I grabbed his hand and got on my knees and let him twirl me around in our very first, lopsided spin.
He was utterly delighted at how well it had worked. His eyes lit up and he exclaimed,
Heart-shaped confetti bomb.

(I do realize that I'm making a big deal about this, but I'm surrounded by so many farting jokes these days, I have to live it up where I can.)

Also, a side note: Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for the kindness and shared experiences and words of encouragement on my last post. I am so so grateful for the warmth that comes from knowing that none of us are ever alone in our experiences. Hugs to all of you!
