"I will take the sun in my mouth

and leap into the ripe air


with closed eyes

to dash against the darkness."

The Pediatrician's Office Made Me Cry

Office staff (over the phone): "Hi, is this Luke and Zoe's mom?"

Me (after a pause to register what was being asked...I'm so used to 'Hi, is this Kristen?'): "Yes."

Office staff: "Just calling to confirm your appointment tomorrow."

Me: "Thanks, we'll be there."

And then I hung up the phone and started crying. 

Happy tears.

I just got referred to as somebody's mom.

I didn't ever think I'd get to be somebody's mom.

So, so, so, so lucky.
