Okay, so we are smack-dab in the middle of tax season. The busiest time of the year for Lj’s Daddy and on the other end the loneliest part for both Lj and me. Tonight Geoff called as he always does on his way home to tell us that he is running later than usual. Well, as we “talked” Lexi just did as her usual “self” and asserted herself into the conversation. Before I knew it, I had Dear Daddy on Speaker Phone and Lexi was seeking book after book to read. I would start each page and and Daddy with good childhood song, rhyme and recent resurrected memory skills would pick up as I stopped a line or two into the story or song… Lexi was in heaven! She had me holding her, turning pages, directing the stories as she and her precious Daddy read nighttime stories. After each one, she would get up and find a new book. He eventually made it home and they spent some face to face time together before he took her too bed and as I type he is putting her down for the night even though it is my “turn”.
As I dreamed of parenthood with Geoff, never in my wildest imagination did I ever think that we would communicate as a family via the telephone! But tonight it worked out perfectly. And as I type this post I can hear them in the other room singing night time songs to each other. I can’t even imagine a more perfect way to end a day.
And to think I thought getting flowers from Geoff today at work was the highlight of my day… as usual, Lexi showed us who is boss!
But once again Geoff reminded me of just one of the reasons I love him so much… Blessed I am with both a dear daughter and a dear husband!
