Today my super in-laws volunteered to look after my kids while I attended a lingerie bridal shower for a certain almost sister-in-law of mine. I returned to two very worn out girls.
Me: Tell me about your day!
Val (sighing): I can't. I'm too tired.
Me: Oh ok.
Val (perking up, flinging her arms around me): But I can give you a HUG!
It spontaneous little moments like that that keep me going.
