Time is passing so quickly.
The minute I laid eyes on you...voila...my fears were history.
You were pure perfection and we all fell in love that day.
I remember how you fell asleep over my heart that morning, two years ago.
Not a moment has passed since that I don't count
Yesterday, as I watched you in your father's arms I thought to myself how
Anything classic boy and he's all over it.
You can't pry him away from his trains, construction vehicles,
Even as a baby in his stroller people would stop and exclaim "he's like a little man."
Yes, he's always been ALL Boy.
When he wanted trains, construction vehicles, ambulances and matchbox cars
When it came time for the army things, however, I was a little less fine.
Then, I realized that my saying no is based upon my own fear that by playing with
Throughout history children have pretended to be warriors, fighters, servicemen,
My putting my own judgments on what he chooses to pretend to be at ten years old only
I decided to allow him the freedom to express what is important to him
Now, I don't know what life as a Wookie or a Clone Trooper is like and the research
As for the military, we have some friends who are retired from different branches
For now, WonderBoy loves dressing up in his real soldier uniform that was a gift
I have to say that I gasp when I look at him in his army uniform.
I'm off to find a stethoscope and a white surgeon's coat...
Sometimes she surprises me.
She hopped right up on that chair without a wimper or a worry in the world.
Once she caught a glimpse of her fine self in the mirror,
All the other clients in the salon were giggling hysterically (along with me!) as they watched her sit so tall and proud on the booster seat in her chair; just like a big girl with her coffee (translation...coffee cup filled with M & Ms) and enjoy her blow dry in the loving hands of Lu.
She loved her new coif,
He's such a lightweight!
You know what they say, sometimes its the real tough guys
Yeah, they talk a good game but when push comes to shove...
Somehow the City just lost its sparkle for me after that horrible tragedy.
We've made several trips in, both with and without the kids this summer, a few of which I'll be blogging about when I can catch up.
Tonight was one of those trips and I just felt like sharing it.
(my Knight in Shining Armor next to this ridiculous imposter!)
This particular restaurant is a whole city block wide.
It's decieving from its entrance because from there you can't see that there's an incredible open air garden dining area in the back.
It's enclosed by the restaurant on one end, two buildings on either side; then by the next street behind the restaurant on the far end.
The garden is beautiful; lined with with trees, twinkle lights, diners, the sky above and ambience galore.
I discovered it when I was in college just a few blocks away.
As long as there's good food
After dinner High Heeled Girl and I hopped in and out of different restaurants and great little boutique hotels on the surrounding blocks planning our next trips to the Big Apple...hmmm, tapas and sangria; brunch with mimosas and bloody marys...
We have lots of fun places ready to go on our list.
It's time to make some new memories.
