This Little Light of Mine

After a Sunday afternoon of He-Twin and Mommy time---an hour+ of errands punctuated with exceptional politeness and kind smiles...

Mommy (from the front seat, with sincere appreciation): "Darren, you shine everyday, but especially so today."

[Silence for a few minutes]

Darren (from the backseat): "Today feels really special."

Mommy (affirmingly): "Today is special...and truly, every day with you as my son feels special."

Darren (bringing it back to reality): "Please don't turn this into a romance novel, Mom."
