In our family, we…
Do the Cupid Shuffle. In the basement. Lit only by a strand of Christmas lights. In July.
Run races, with very complicated rules and some disagreements, in the backyard.
Have imaginary cowboy camps on the swingset, pet shops in the dining room, and pirate treasure in the living room.
Talk. A lot.
Get frustrated with each other. Get over it.
Take our turtle for “day trips” to our pond and occasionally use the cat’s tail as a microphone.
Laugh. A lot.
Stay up talking when we should be sleeping.
Mess up. Try again. Repeat.
Love. A lot. And that’s the one that really matters.
