My Heart Was Jabbed With a Sharp Spike of Joy

...when they came into the dining room this morning, singing Bert & Ernie's "La, La, La" ...

For one crazy moment I felt as if my whole life had led up to that moment, that maybe when I was five and singing along with my Sesame Street records on my Fisher Price turntable, I had imagined my children -- these very children! -- singing this song.

(this album -- oft-played when the boy was still small -- has been on heavy rotation on the bathroom iPod)
