All His Weight

Originally published March 19, 2018.

This was a rough weekend with the kids. Lots of fights, lots of talking back, a lot of being sent to rooms.

But Ben is still that almost baby who will, when I pick him up to carry him up the stairs, commits to it utterly. He holds on tight, and gives me all of his weight.

That won’t last much longer. I’ll miss it when it stops.
