…what leads me to massage Bag Balm on the Moose’s back at 1:00 AM when he’s fussy, because it has broken out and itches.
Even though he did it to himself, by dragging a chair over to the counter, and raiding the brownies. Which he’s allergic to, because they contain gluten and dairy.
Human nature is that sneaky voice in my head that says, “Better do his legs, too – it’ll make his chances of sleeping another six hours go up by at least 75%.
… but I like to think I’d have balmed his legs anyway.
Because I love him.
I’m his mom.
