There Are Moments

Three years ago this week I bought my townhouse and Keegan and I moved in. That means that Jeff has been in Keegan's life for three years. We had waited until we were dating for a while before involving the kids. Yesterday Keegan was outside cleaning up sand toys with my mom. Jeff and I were upstairs putting dinner on the table. Keegan asked my mom, "Where are my parents?" He has never referred to us like that before. It is always "my mom" or "my mom and Jeff." I feel very comforted that he thinks of us in that way. A unit that is here to love him, keep him safe and take care of him.
