Wife and daughter are capable of even making The Moth better.

As much as I love The Moth, the drive into the city immediately after work is never easy for me. I don’t get a chance to see my family, and I often arrive back home well after midnight, when everyone is deep in sleep.

It’s also not easy for my wife, who spends the entire evening alone with a nine month old boy and a four year old girl. As well behaved as our children are and as skilled a mother as Elysha is, it’s still not exactly a piece of cake.

All this makes these already over-the-moon-precious goodnight messages all the more meaningful to me.

I am truly the luckiest man I have ever known.
