  • Today has been a challenging day with the Human Hurricane, also known as My Son. While he sleeps peacefully here, a picture of angelic serenity, his waking hours are currently a full schedule of messing, destroying, discovering, pulling down, opening up, playing, smearing, tearing and laughing. I take these quiet, sleepy moments and I hold onto them, giving myself a moment to catch my breath, before the next adventure.
