Brigham and I have a new game. Every day when we go to pick up Ayvri from school I look in the rear-view mirror and I see this face . . .
So I pull the same face back at him, just as sad and serious as I can and then I see this face . . .
Which of course makes me smile as big as possible. Then we repeat it over and over until we get there to pick up Ayvri. One day I was feeling particularly grumpy. Things at the office weren't great, the house was not getting finished quick enough for me, I was unhappy with some of the people in my life and I wasn't looking in the rearview mirror. Finally I glanced back to see if I could switch lanes and there was the face - only instead of looking grumpy he was smiling as hard as he could at me. He thought I started the game with my sad face and he was taking his turn. How could I help but smile back at my angel boy whose dimples rock my world. I'm so thankful he didn't give up on his Mom and our back seat game.
