the reason

She’s the reason I get up in the morning.

And the reason I get up in the middle of the night.

The reason I sing lullabies at three a.m.

The reason I know yo gabba gabba, raffi and sesame street songs by heart.

The reason I’ve relearned my nursery rhymes.

The reason I’ve relearned ASL.

The reason I buy goldfish crackers.

Which leads to the reason I strive to make healthy, balanced meals.

The reason I get excited when I see an Elmo book or shirt.

The reason I use words like “potty”, “poopy” and “pee pee”.

The reason my expletives now consist if “oh my goodness!” and “oh my gosh”.

The reason I know I say the word “awesome” and the phrase “that’s so cute!” far too often.

The reason I’m not in the workforce right now.

The reason I try to be social on a regular basis (despite how much I might feel like being a hermit).

The reason I use good manners.

The reason I question my actions.

The reason I step back and look inward when I’m frustrated.

The reason I wave and smile when someone cuts me off (or at least refrain from other less than becoming behavior).

The reason I try to be a better person.

The reason I’m taking better care of myself.

The reason that I’m incredibly challenged every day.

I love you, C! <3
