"Want me to read to you, Mom?"
Sweet words, indeed. He had to ask what "muscle" was-- but did fine with "landscapes". Needed help with "dominated" and "surroundings", but did just fine with "position", "highways" and "byways" and "difficulty".
"Mom!," he says with a beaming smile, "Come see this...."
Turned out to be something very, very fine...our very first ripe blackberry.
And sweet Peep play.
And our days have looked like stuffed bunnies and "Read this to me, Mommy.",
and bug nets
and admiring Harold and Maude the Goldfish
painting with water
fuzzy jumping spiders
and favorite icecream treats.
All is well.
