things you can put in a glass jar:
flowers from your boyfriend
or your wedding
or your grandma's funeral.
things you cannot put in a glass jar:
that extra sleep you got before you had kids.
the two year old's baby words.
the feeling of being in the same room with your boyfriend,
or your husband,
or your grandma.
(but i wish you could.)
i meant to somehow make this about how today is the fourth of july but i just started typing and that didn't come out at all.
tomorrow morning at 6:30am the baby and i will arrive at the surgery center to get the tubes put in his ears. i know it will be fine but i also know i will be tired and nervous to see him wear his little baby hospital gown and go under general anesthesia. prayers for calm would be appreciated. Xs and Os.
ps. i don't speak french but i do like this song.
