So, one other thing. This week is Debbie's birthday. We'll be having a party for her later today. Happy birthday sweetie!
For anyone who doesn't know, Debbie is an amazing mom. When I disappear for three straight days she satys home with the kids, lovingly an patiently doing everyting they need all by herself. She lets me sleep even though she is exhausted and in need of sleep herself. She has taught Avi almost everything he knows. One of his favorite signs is still mommy. He signs it everyday. He asks for her every day when she goes to work, especially when I'm making him do things he doesn't want to do. Itai absolutely adores her! Those big, bright, blue eyes search for her, hoping to find her. Should I be holding him anywhere near her his little arms will stretch out to her.
She's also a great wife. She is so supportative of me no matter what I do. She leaves early in the morning to work and forces herself to stay when what she really wants to do is come home and rest, or play with her kids. She is so kind and loving.
Debbie, thank you for everything and happy birthday!
