Today I stood Amelia on the floor next to her crib. Her hands grasped the crib rail and carefully, ever so carefully and with caution, I let go of her. Amelia stood for several moments without anyone holding her up. She held herself up.
I have been many things: an actress, a waitress, an executive asst., a casting asst., a meeter and greeter girl at Wallach's dept. store, a school mascot, camp counselor...none of them compare to being Nestor's wife, Spike's stepmom and Amelia's Mommy. I love my family more than anything in the world.
