Just One Day

A significant event is looming for my family.  Our third child will arrive sometime in the next seven days. As per our usual M.O the house is torn apart and covered in demolition/construction debris, the cameras have been downloaded and flickr has been getting a workout. As I sit here I am wistful,thinking of the past, waves of nostalgia and sadness are alternatively engulfing my being.

When I was a kid there were two people who were very important in my life. I love them dearly even though they have been gone for over a decade. My grandparents meant the world to me. My parents were very young when I was born. Looking back I think my grandparents were so involved because they were still raising my mom and her husband (my dad, duh) as much as they were lending a hand an helping raise me. There are all of these movies about going back in time and re-living high school, about getting a second chance. My fantasy would be one day with my grandparents. One day to let my kids meet them, one day to let them beam with pride over their great-grandchildren.

That's a screen play to pitch. Just One More Day.

And belief.

Heck of a responsibility raising kids with the G-Parents watching.

Congrats.

I still think of a kid with chocolate from ear to ear.
