grateful to pick-up his dirty clothes, to argue over brushing his teeth, to give him my mittens on a cold morning, to try and get the dirt out from beneath his nails, to tell him to change his socks, to negotiate with him on "just ten more minutes!", to remind him to do his homework, to trip over things he has not put away, to endlessly debate the merit of one skylander or pokemon or superhero over another, to smell his sweaty little boy smell and hear the sound of his laughter and tell him that I love him more than anyone has ever loved anything, to still occasionally get to hold his hand, to kiss him and whisper good night and God bless you when he is asleep. i am grateful, so grateful.
