So, we've had a trying time of late. Little Man is still struggling with school, my ankle is still giving me trouble and I'm headed to another specialist in a couple of weeks, we've had some hiccups with Nemo as far as his diagnosis and therapy is concerned, BigDaddyFish has had some health issues for which he'll have surgery in a couple of weeks, Trout is 13 and good Lord is she 13, and, unsurprisingly, my blood pressure is up and I didn't respond well to the first medication my cardiologist tried. I miss writing.
Today Sunny and I were discussing Christmas, and how this year she's asked Santa to bring her the newest historical American Girl doll, Caroline. She told me that she had an idea for next year, though, but it was "a little weird." I told her we love weird here and to lay it on me.
"Next year, Mommy, I want to ask Santa to just donate money to someone who needs it. I have toys and my family, I have everything I need and don't need more. So I want him to take care of someone who has needs."
I dunno what I did to get this kind of awesomesauce kid, but damn am I grateful I did it.
