it's been a long week with the kids. we have toddler molars coming in resulting in numerous meltdowns over pretty much nothing and tummy pains causing hours of baby crying. today we had over two hours in the car in a big drive out east to see a dear friend, copious vomit, plenty of changes of clothes and many tears from both of them. and yet, we have moments like this in our days, when they are both happy and smiley and so satisfied with being together. mutual adoration.
