These Weeks: An Ode

Thoughts from the past few weeks.  To this bouquet, picked and arranged by a certain three-year-old. To this sunflower, carefully tended by that same little boy. To this fluorescent sunrise.To these twinners quietly and methodically flipping through chapter books. To paradigm shifts and refocusing. To paying more attention and not worrying quite so much.

This Week: An Ode

To a chocolate cake with pink frosting to celebrate a certain two-year-old in our family.  To washing the sink, that turned into playing with cars in the sink.  To “look at this mommy!” and the discovery of slugs.  To more sunny warm days and peaceful sand exploration.  To friends to play piano and sing with.  … More This Week: An Ode

To a sunny walk to the grocery store and these clouds seen through the eyes of a three-year-old. (photo by Arthur.) To the first skinned knees of summer … More This Week: An Ode

This Week: An Ode

(or rather this week and last week) To kid-built blanket forts for post-dinner reading. To these little buddies who love playing together.  To potty training successes. . . and the Naked Bum Rebellion. Somehow I will convince you to keep your clothes on. . .  To cold snowy days for ice-stomping and snow-tasting. To more … More This Week: An Ode
