A strange thing happened today while Meredith was at school.... I missed her!!! The house was very quiet (Michael was sleeping), the car was very quiet (Michael was at home with Daddy), and I actually couldn't wait to pick her up from school and hear what her afternoon had been like. She is my snuggly child - this morning we had a nice time reading and snuggling together. I think that it made me remember what a sweet little girl that she is. In the midst of her strong willed spirit, sometimes I forget that side of her. I'm glad that this afternoon I remembered.
