Tonight I let the dog into the backyard.  I caught sight of him out the window and noticed he was limping.  Another sticker burr, poor fella.  I went to the door and opened it, calling to my Charlie.  He came running right to me, as if to say, "Help me, mommy," and I grabbed his foot, pulled the burr out, kissed his head, and he ran in the house.

And it was such a good feeling, to be needed like that and to be able to be the only one who could help him.  To see the look on his face as he came running to me for help.

I can't wait to be that for my child.

2 It won't be long & you'll be the cure-all for everything from wet diapers to boredom to bellyaches.  Then, it's on to kindergarten jitters, broken hearts and losing the big game.

Oh, snap.  It doesn't  go quite that quickly...

almost, though!
