Beware of Nancy Botwin  
It was a long day, especially considering Nancy hadn't slept at all the night before; with Esteban's arrest, she had opted for copious amounts of wine instead of sleep. Of course, it wasn't just the wine and lack of sleep which made the day long and excruciating though.

It was a long day because she spent it confused, asking and answering a hundred questions; all of which had no real compensation. It was a long day because her new husband was in trouble and she felt useless. It was a long day because it seemed like everyone she cared about in the world had decided to take a swipe at her in between all her worrying and wondering.

So, Nancy was tired at this point; she was tired emotionally and physically. She was tired, and yet, she couldn't stop thinking. She couldn't stop thinking about how messy her life had become, about how she gave Andy the first ring Judah had ever given her, about how she barely knew her kids now, and how she wasn't sure if she could ever fix things or be happy for more than five minutes.

The only thing she really had going for her at the moment seemed to be crying in the next room.

He was innocent. He was loving and loyal and beautiful. He didn't call her a bad mom or question her decisions. He didn't ask for anything but a little attention every now and then and help with basic needs.

As she stepped into his nursery and scooped him up from his crib, she held him close, rubbing his back to quiet him and starting to cry softly as she did so.

He was perfect and she didn't want to wreck him.
