Yesterday the little man and I had a morning that was great. He had raspberries as part of his breakfast. He loves raspberries! He looked like a red mess from the top of his head all the way to his little toes. He uses sign language to let us know when he is finished and when he wants more…. He wanted more and followed it with please, so who could refuse a little berry blotched face and head with chubby little finger that were caked in berry goo? I couldn’t deny him, and I didn’t.
I managed to get him all cleaned up, looking like a normal little man. His high chair was cleaned and all looked like it was recovered from the raspberries.
We set out for the park. It was a beautiful day. I was pushing the stroller along when I looked down to see the raspberry stains all over my arm! Gee, Grammy… make sure everyone is clean before you go out!
Today we stayed in. We also got to see Grampy via Skype (A,K.A. my dear anonymous hubby). It was a short visit, but a very nice one. Little man waved and babbled to his Grampy, showed him books and toys and blew kisses. At one point Grampy had to hang up and call us right back. Once more Little Man signed for ‘more’. He wanted more time with his Grampy.
The lessons from the past two days? When you really enjoy something, go for it with all the gusto you have. Jump right into it and enjoy each taste as if it is the only taste you will get. The last lesson? Always want more time with those you love.
Thanks for stopping by… DAF
