there were lots o’ reasons today, actually…

but especially at the very end of it…when him and me were finally all tucked into our bed

with me turned in close and one-eye-peaking over his shoulder at the book he was reading a bit before sleep…

and after interrupting…maybe more than the once…i inquired who’d authored his book…

and then…again…i observed, “he likes hyphens…”

to which…his eyes never leaving the page…he casually replied, “almost as much as you like your ellipsis…”

and then i quickly argued something about how i just write the same way that i talk!  that i’m just never done talking…or thinking

and he countered…just as swiftly…that “yes”, i never do seem to run out of words…

and that sometimes

all he hears is, “…”!

and that made me smile…and laugh…a lot!

confessing to my honey at the end of this day…“i don’t have a monday’s reason…”

me ashamed to admitnot even one

and him encouraging, “yes, you do…”

and then to my challenging “yeah?”

his simple “look around you

and…oh, yes

i did it again! 

i forgot…

and how is that always so easy for me to do?

christmas “making” in the kitchen…

covering corn with caramel…and dropping cookies…

with christmas music playing…and helpers coming in and out…

and christmas only 2 sleeps away!!!

that littlest little working so hard at our knob…until he finally worked it free

and him and blankie circling ‘round to my side of our bed

and me pulling him up…and then down into the valley between him and me

and him settling down between us…his little head pressed tight to my chest…

and the three of us content to just take our time waking up into this day

that littlest littlesnuggling!

just him…and him…and me!

finding a sweet note in my box the very first thing…

having a lingering-long-after-she-cleared-our-table lunch date with him

learning they could all come to share our first peppermint ice cream and cocoa of the season…

that boy o’ mine sitting down next to me and just needing to talk…even to me…just his mama…

and…really…just eventually losing count…

just truly more reasons than i deserve on this monday!

getting to the (almost) end of this most mondayest of mondays…sometime after most everyone else had all trickled off to their beds

and that boy o’ mine coming to me…completely unaware of my sorry-for-me state…and asking…

“do you want anything from dairy queen?”
