The Sweetest Kiss


Jack has been going to bed very late this week. He is talking more. He is energized by life. Such a passion! One night around 3am I was feeling very sorry for myself. I had nursed him and rocked him and sung to him. He was not going to go to sleep. I gave up on him and myself. I turned on the TV and slumped down on the couch as he ran around the living room. The show Scrubs was on. Two characters were in a pool kissing. Jack turned around and looked at me. He ran over and gave me a kiss.
