"My body made your body..."
No, don't get up and go call the police or report me to children's services; it's just a joke.
We all laugh - and then I tickle or nuzzle or cuddle with them some more.
Last week when we were in Hilton Head, I spent a lot of time watching my children.
I stared at their hands.
Watching them while one played tennis and the other watched tennis.
I spent a lot of that time marveling that my body made their bodies. Even though I was there for every moment of my body making their bodies, it still amazes me, silences me, rocks me to my core. Every single day. The wonder of the human body. Mine and theirs. The wonder of life itself.
