Yesterday when James was playing next to me on the couch, something kind of magical happened.
he reached his hand up on to my back
and pulled at the ends of my long hair
just the way Kirk does when I have a headache
just the way my dad did to help me to sleep as a girl
my shoulders relaxed, my head fell to the side, and I think I heard birds chirping...
he pulled my hair gently for about three strokes and then,
he grabbed a big handful and yanked with all his baby boy strength and I was thrown back into reality.
But hey, I take what I can get. :)
