My parents are in town for Madam's second birthday. These are the first words they said to me as we hugged near baggage claim:

"Oh, you've gotten FAT!"


The reality of them has chased all possibilities of writing away. I miss your wise words horribly. See you in a week, or so.

Wish me sanity.

PS: Writing about my fears below, and your compassionate responses, has helped me more than you know. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I wish we lived closer - I'd come steal you away for a sane hour too. Breathe.

My grandpa always used to announce loudly if he thought I had gained or lost weight. It's a charming form of greeting, no?

Thinking of you.
