Requisite Smooshy Post About Motherhood

A few weeks ago, Spiceboy and I were lying on the bed with Alice dozing between us when he asked me, "Are you happy?"

“Very,” I replied.

“Remember how scared you were before you had the baby? You were worried that it was the end of things the way they were."

“I remember.”

“Do you still feel that way?” he asked.

“No. I realize now that it wasn’t the end at all. It was the beginning of absolutely everything.”
