And they are usually just moments...not long stretches. In a family of four someone is always crabby or whining. But Ed reads our blog updates at work so he doesn't hear the music or see the pictures. So tonight he asked about the song. So I played it on our stereo. I turned it up loud. And it hit me. I LOVE THIS SONG! It has been a while since I have let country hokey lyrics hit me and move me. This song makes me think of day two at the cottage...at a northern Wisconsin bar with good friends and family and creative drinks made by our favorite bartender (gosh I don't even know her name...do you remember Colleen). So turn this song up...it is Friday night! I am happy in my jeans! And the four of us just sat in the living room listening. Charley laughing and talking...Henry walking from daddy to mommy and giggling. Both Ed and I taking in the moment and realizing that we are doing this thing called parenting justice. I think we are doing a pretty good job...most of the time. It was a rough day for Charley and it is nice to end with a family moment....along with a large glass of red wine.
