You my sweet boy, are the light of my life. You’re the source of my laughter.And the source of the semi-frequent “poo clean-ups”. You’re the body behind the giant grocery tab.And the body keeping my heart wide open and full. You’re the pickiest of eaters, with a fairly short list of “approvals”.And you’re the energy, […]
