You know it's gonna be an alright sort of day when your son wakes up and first thing heads to his room to read.What can I say?
I'm still a Mama who loves to see a little (self taught) boy reading.
Maybe someday I'll be less enchanted. But not today.
He went later to the computer for a small minute,
Madd grabbed a bucket of crayons and a piece of paper,
and this Mama headed out to harvest raspberries.
Their Daddy fixed us breakfast, and then the children lured him outside to the rope swing...
where one of them flew so high he touched the branches.Fancy that.
I remembered yesterday's email, and thought of the solar experiment, and gathered up a few others to go along with it.
Water Play experiments, today.
Lots of fun, that.
Play on the trampoline, in pillow cases. Er- with a Mama Border, which means "if you're gonna be trapped in a pillowcase, then I need you to stay inside this border so's you don't fall off and get dead."
Now you know you can't get yourself into this kind of predicament and not have someone -er, Mama- bite her lip and look at you crossways and wonder for exactly how long she should keep you there, and to contemplate what those Benefits just might be. No matter that you give her your best Pitiful look.
'Cause Mama's funny that way. It's humorous, not dangerous, after all.
But she's fair enough, and so calls Daddy, though not without picking up her camera.
It's all silliness, and turns out alright.As Mama knew it would.
Boy came over to play, which meant Boy Play -with a baby sister in tow- for a couple of hours.
