10:38 am: Compensation
Parenting is hard. Marriage is hard. Life is hard sometimes.

But this morning, as I watched Teddy gyrate his diaper-clad butt as he perched on the sofa's arm and tapped out a syncopating rhythm on a lampshade?

So worth it.

Dancing around the living room until we're both breathless and giggling?

Worth it.

Seeing him, rapt, listening to the feminist-era stories and songs in Free to Be... You and Me? Y'know, the ones that should be dated but seem to be getting more and more relevant every day (thank you, Mr. McCain)?

Worth it.

And that impromptu massage he's giving me as I write this?

Doooode! WORTH IT.

Reading him Bread and Jam for Frances, Owen and Mzee, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Everywhere Babies... the list goes on and on.

Listening to him narrate his crazy, wild-ass games of [pre]tend?

Baking castle cakes and pumpkin muffins and mixing salads and slicing lemons and sharing bowls of cereal?


...and that's not to mention the snuggles, the kisses, the tickles, the games of chase, the I love yous and the milujites.

No question: worth it.
