Sometimes all we want in life is something very simple…
A good photograph of your family at the zoo, for instance.
Neither of my men were cooperative, so c’est la vie. Catch you next time Giraffe. At least you were cooperative.
At bedtime tonight, I watched Adam leap around his bed, avoiding getting jammies on, avoiding bedtime. I studied his little, now happy face, and was in awe. I made this…(with some help, of course), but this little boy is a part of me, and yet he is wholly his own person too. I couldn’t help but wonder what the world looks like from his perspective. What simple pleasure could he want? A little more time with mommy? A snuggle? Please, God, don’t let it be ANOTHER book. And yet, I wanted to hold on to this bedtime a little longer. I snuggled with my son and wished that for a few years longer he could just stay little.
