So I had a couple of extra minutes this morning, and I told JJ that my first birthday wish today was to snuggle in my favorite chair with my baby. Most awesome offspring that he is, he crawled up onto my lap and let me rock with him for a few minutes.
..... ..... .....
Tonight, after everything died down, I told JJ that I had one last birthday wish. "We're going to snuggle in the chair again, aren't we?" he asked.
"Of course," I told him.
"Let me get my blankie..." he sighed.
So, for the second glorious time today, I got to rock with the most amazing kid on the planet. And a short while later, as I carried my sleeping boy up to bed, I realized he granted another wish I hadn't even made.
