some days it's just worth being there:
me (walking into the house): Hello the house!
K: Daddy! Guess what?!?
me (walking into the kitchen): Hey monkeys. What?
K (serious look): Zoey has the amonia.
me (quick glance at M, then averted eyes): Really?
K: Yeah. She's in the hospital. And we're going to draw pictures for her.
L: Yeah, we're going to draw pictures!
ps, happy birthday, sis.
