Six tweets from last night

It’s midnight and my family has taken up the entire bed. So I’m sleeping in my 6YO’s bed. It’s nicer than ours.

I saw a boy tonight, surrounded by friends, as he threw up in an arena stall after an asthma attack. I waited for adults, but his friends took care of him. It made me feel very good about The State of Today’s Youth.

I worry my kids will grow to ignore me. Then they pile in my bed, just for the chance to be close. And I can’t be mad.

Because they are kids. They are kind. They are compassionate. And because of that, I can sleep anywhere I end up.
