This LAN Was Made For You & Me

Even if Jason's older kids were budding sociopaths, I would have found a way to love them regardless. But phew! They're awesome. Like, mind-blowingly awesome. His daughter Kira is 12 and has a way of making everything around her beautiful. His son Ben is 10 and can make me laugh so hard my lungs hurt. They're kind, supportive, compassionate, and Zach is happiest when he's with them.  At the Airbnb we rented a couple weeks ago in Myrtle Beach. I forgave the wood paneling because it has its own beach access. A while back, Ben went into the shortcut settings on Kira's phone.

Missed Approach

Zach reached the important milestone of being able to take off his pants and leave them in the middle of the floor.  Things I miss since this little energy robber came along: 1.) Binge watching whatever I want. Now it's whatever Zach wants. Stupid Wiggles. 2.) Eating whatever I want, or doing whatever fad diet piqued my interest. Breastfeeding prevents that, and I'm constantly hungry, thirsty, and not losing the baby weight. 3.) Playing on my phone in the bathroom. 4.) Not knowing the Gummy Bear Song. 5.) Neatness, tidiness, and cleanliness. I used to fear poop, and I was okay with that. 6.) Being able to focus on a project instead of being interrupted every five minutes. 7.) My two-seater red convertible, Alvin. 8.) Only having to pay for one person when I go out. 9.) Not having to compromise. 10.) Not having to share.
