I took dogs and kids on an evening walk tonight before dinner. Selfishly wanted to get it over with so I could stop and head back once my FitBit buzzed for 10,000 steps!
3 year old son fell apart once we were out the door because I wouldn’t let him bring a flashlight. “The moon is almost full,” I instructed. Then I realized he might not know what that means. “Mama, I want to go to the moon!” – you can one day, I say, semi- confidently. Because who knows what crazy technology puzzle will get him there!
5 year old daughter complains that she’s cold, “freezing” on our walk. Well that’s because she’s wearing a lightweight cardigan sweater with sunflowers on it. She’s into dressing herself, the more floral patterns, the better. Tights, twirling skirts, stripes, sparkles — all at once. fancy Nancy might give her an approving nod.
Flashlights and sunflower cardigans… Time to breathe it in. So I don’t forget.
