Sweet Child of Mine

It is very, very, very rare that I get to go to the kids' school anymore.  I'd love to volunteer and sneak back into the classroom, but, lately, my time is taken up with all things Ronan.  When I'm absent from school events, friends are so good to send me texts and pictures of all the fun going on.  The kids understand that I can't always be there, and they never complain about it.

Well, today, I got to see a sweet child of mine during a school event.  How my heart swelled with pride! Izzy smiled when she saw me, but seeing me without Ronan, who is usually always with me, a look of concern fell over her.  

"Mom," she mouthed from the stage, "where's Ronan?!?!" 

I signed to her that he was okay and with someone else (thank you, therapists, for once again working your magic so that I wasn't caught in the two-places-at-once dilemma that plagues our family!).  She breathed a sigh of relief and got herself ready for what was coming next.  

I got to give Izzy a quick hug after she was eliminated in a contest that she knew she wasn't going to win but 'was gonna try real hard anyway' and snuck out of the school to make sure I could get home in time to greet Ronan.  As I drove home, this song came on the radio.  I was already smiling from ear-to-ear, and I couldn't help but smile a little bit more. 

If you know her, you know that IzBiz is something else. 

She is spirited.  

She is spunky.  

She is independent. 

She is determined.  

But most of all, she is loyal--especially when it comes to Ronan.

I love her with all of my heart.  And I love that she loves her big brother with all of hers
