These emotions are intense and hard to articulate. I know, because I struggle to come up with new ways to say them too.
Sometimes the most expressive of these tender words just slip out. Tonight Finny woke up as I was heading into bed. She didn't open her eyes, but she wrapped her arms around my neck in her tight and uniquely Finny way.
"Mumma," she said, "if I didn't have you...my life would be a real stinker."
Right back at you, baby girl.

We have been skating together about 3 times a week since November and he has made huge progress. The one thing he hasn't wanted to do is cross-overs. For some reason they really scare him, so he was pretty reluctant when they were introduced into his class.
He had so much pride after the lesson as he told me cross-overs actually weren't that bad and he kind of likes then now. He wasn't very interested however in my follow up lesson of the importance of trying new things even if they scare you.
