avian flu thing that the prez keeps bringing up in the news. So-- the meaning of this long and boring post? I want to protect them. I want to keep them inside the window-- but I know, that certainly one day-- they will want to see more than what is inside that window. -- and that scares the shit out of me. Part of my prayers tonight? "God let me be a good enough parent" - "God let me love them, even though someday they will want to leave us- and have a life of their own," "God let me make it though them growing up."
