Well, four actually...
1. It's pretty gratifying when you see your photos showing up on Christmas cards, blog headers and Facebook profile pictures.
2. You know your normally fiercely independent child is sick when all that fiercely independent child wants to do is snuggle with you on the couch.
3. You know your fiercely independent child is feeling better when she's back to her don't-hold-me self.
4. Christmas is in three days! THREE DAYS!
