McKay is all about his super powers right now as you know. He makes excellent sound effects too as we've heartily enjoyed! I was thinking about this super hero phase of his last night and it hit me. I don't know if I've thanked you enough for your recent heroism saving me, your resident damsel in distress. I always get frustrated with damsels in distress. Why can't they be more self sufficient and less needy, less high maintenance. [Open mouth, insert foot.]
Do you know you've saved me or was it just all in a day's work? You've saved me countless times lately from my weak moments of being overwhelmed by a little unexpected turn of events here and there.
Damsel Moment #1:
We had people over and I was busy in the kitchen. Morgan found a box of unfrozen popsicles and managed to bite through one. She was standing in a puddle of green sticky syrup. It just put me over the edge and I called out for help. No bat signal in the sky needed. You flew in and in a flash, mopped up the mess while I stood by watching your handiwork. I finished my stuff up and we enjoyed the evening like nothing happened.
Damsel Moment #2:
We got home from our short travels with your family and expected them to drop in later for dinner. I put our favorite chicken dish in the crock pot per request. Tired from the trip, I sulked over the pile of post-trip mini-van vomit on the living room floor that was hollering at me to be put away. Hours later our family arrived and I realized I didn't have the two essential ingredients to make the sauce. You know that moment of mental paralysis? I cried for help and you, my hero, again swooped in and saved the day whipping up a tasty sauce. Again, no one else was the wiser of my weak moment.
Your heroic sound effects are absent, silent really. There's no self-aggrandizing, sing song "Here I come to save the day!" No bad guys to wallop, just my inner demons you keep at bay. Thank you for preserving my sanity and go-with-the-flow-ness ("It's really all one big 'facade'.") so I could enjoy the heart of those evenings.
The longer you're around, the more I need you. The more I love you.
