Tricky turned two today.
And it was glorious.
What do you think of, I said to his father, the fact that he's turning two, what does that make you think of?
I think...that time goes so fast, he said, that I can't believe it's two years already.
I think that, I said, But also I think of this day, and the days that led up to it, giving birth to him and what a strange and extraordinary time that was.
And then I think of the years that led up to that day.
The waiting and the hoping and the wishing and the counting and the medicating and the testing
and then he came.
And even now, two years later, sometimes I can't quite believe it.
