Later, I laughed over his toddler greed. But then I had an epiphany. I also keep holding out for "the big piece", my dream of a bigger family, another child. Sometimes I forget to take complete joy in "my little piece", the darling, funny child, who makes me laugh each day. It's human nature, to be on the lookout for more, always more. I'm sure I will fall back into wishing for what I don't have.
But today, I celebrate and thank my lucky stars for my little Nugget. Maybe someday, I'll get that big brownie. But today I choose to be happy with my lot.
