I still can’t get over how I got this kid to look into my eyes for a good while!!
*tries to fix sleeping schedule* *makes it worse*
Is he the man you want to be the father of your kids?
Is he the one you want with you, in the delivery room, wiping the tears from your eyes, saying “I love you, I’m proud of you”?
Is he the one who you want your kids to look up to?
Is he the man you want, teaching and disciplining your child?
Is he the one to provide and care for you?
this is important
if you are losing weight and getting fit right now and you’re in college, with a job, in your late teens or early twenties, and you are not only struggling with the bullshit that goes with school and work but also trying to get in the best shape of your life while also simultaneously coping with the inner monologue in your head that won’t shut up about your imminent future as an adult in the real world, you get mad props from me.
Then there is the boy you can never stop thinking about. Whenever you see his name, it trips you up. Even if it’s one that belongs to many others, even if he belongs to someone else.
You know he is a symbol of your weakness, your Kryptonite. How he rushes in like wildfire and burns through everything you worked so hard to build since he last left you in ashes."
