It has been a rough day. I could enumerate all the reasons why; road work, almost lost cell phone, children without naps. But the details don't really matter. At the end of the day I was recalling the struggles and how William had been more difficult than normal. And I was sad that his last day as a four year old was going to be a bad one. I attributed it to too much fun. Then I remembered. Five years ago on July 28 at 8 am I went into the hospital to be induced. William was stubborn, just like he is now. He has always marched to his own drum and that stinky baby wasn't born until 1 pm on July 29th.
So that's when I realized that I was having another 'labor' day. William full of his stubborn self and with his own drummer. It was kind of fitting that today was like that. I just hope that tomorrow is as wonderful was it was 5 years ago when William Caskey joined our family.
