Photos like these remind me of how stupid I can be.
About eight years ago, Elysha began talking about wanting a second child. While I was agreeable to the prospect of one more kid, I was also perfectly happy with just Clara. She was a happy and healthy little girl who filled my heart with joy.
Did we really need another?
What a stupid question.
I can’t imagine the world without Charlie today. He is such an interesting and lovable human being, but beyond my own love for my son, I can’t imagine my kids without the blessing of each other.
Not only does our boy bring so much happiness to our lives, but Clara and Charlie love each other so much, and I simply can’t imagine them existing without each other.
Listening to my kids talk and play and laugh together is by far my favorite thing in this world.
Thank goodness for Elysha’s infinite wisdom.
