Note to self: Read this post when Nate is a teenager

It was one of those sunny spring days that we don’t usually get untill May.  The wind was just enough to cool my bare shoulders against the suns warm glow.  The clouds raced against the sky and danced shadows along the lawn sprinkled with violets and buttercups.  Nate ran after pepper, her black coat gleaming in the sunlight.  The wind blew whirligigs out of the old maple, and they danced around them, boy and dog, like little fairies come to bless this moment.  His laughter pealed out of him as he chased the dog, chubby legs trying to keep up.  The sweet innocent giggle that can only come from a child.  I want to remember this day for the rest of my life.



  1. this is gorgeous.

    there will be sweet times when he’s a teenager.

  2. Mama, once again we’d like to invite you to become one of our Authors in Alexandria.

    You may mirror your existing posts from here or elsewhere or produce original posts there, on anything you wish, as you desire. For your contributions and participation we will blogroll you with no reciprocation required. See our Guidelines for Authors for full details.

    Come contribute your perspectives and opinions to the ongoing conversations there or, even better, start some new – and different – ones of your own. Contact us through the site for full invitations and instructions.

    • Thank you, again for the invite, but no, I do not want to join your community. Of the posts I read on your site, they seem to be political and right-winged. Which is kind of the opposite of me. Please stop asking me to join your group all for the glory of you putting me on your blogroll….
