MISSING: One Double Stroller

Tomorrow I am bittersweetly honored to walk as part of one awesome Team James & Jake. I'm all set to use my new-ish fancy stroller and swallowed an uncomfortable lump in my throat when thinking about another double stroller that will be absent tomorrow.

One that would have James and Jake riding along, maybe even leading our parade.
Oh, they'll still be there. With every pair of butterflies their Mommy sees or those two birds flying overhead. With every heart missing them, too. They're just there in a different way.

I'd do anything for Beth. Everyone knows I can't say no to her. (She knows it, too, and you better believe she uses that power!) She tells me to eat a cheeseburger, I eat a cheeseburger. (Even though I might be vegan at the time.)

She tells me to taunt my child, darn it... maybe I'll write about that one later.


I wrote a post on her blog last year that I will share again tomorrow. Think of us as we are walking. (SIX MILES!)

I'd do anything for Beth.
