Tag. You're frozen. You must now stop where you're at. Don't move a muscle. Look around you. Wait for someone else to unfreeze you. While you're frozen, take a minute to appreciate your surroundings.
Look at your lovies. I'm looking at mine. I'm taking a mental picture. I'm wishing that right here, right now, I could stop everything to remember things exactly the way they are right now.
Ava is chub-tastic. She's learning to walk. She has dirty hands and dirty feet. She has two and a half teeth. Her little thighs have just the right amount of meat on them. Her hair is styled in a perpetual faux-hawk. She reaches for me and smiles when I bend to pick her up. She is so perfect.
Alana is my little know-it-all. She has wildly curly hair and chipped nail polish. She is always asking to wear my earrings. She gives kisses and hugs away like she has an endless supply. She is addicted to watermelon slushies. She enjoys helping me in the kitchen, its one of her favorite things. She is my sous chef. Pushing buttons on the blender is her specialty. She likes being with me. She always wants to play. With me. She is perfect too.
David is here, with me. He will always be with me. He claims he didn't marry me for my cooking. That's probably a lie.
Right now, today, I have everything I need, everything I want. I wish I could stay frozen. But its hot in Arizona.
