Last week was one of the fastest moving weeks in my life. I knew the time would pass quickly, but I didn’t know it would pass at the speed of light. I truly think I was cheated out of at least four of the days last week. I know I must have gone from Monday to Friday in one quick swoop. It just wasn’t fair.
I had planned to do a series on Little Man. I thought it would be fun and wonderful like the last visit I had with him. Time to play, time to watch, time to write. Well, I was correct on two of three accounts. I did get to play with him and I did get to watch as he did his thing. I just didn’t have time to write.
Little Man stole the rest of my heart. Frankly, I have no idea how I am breathing and moving around, as I know this cute little fingers are holding onto my heart miles away.
He stole some of my heart when he was born. Each visit he captures a few more sections of my heart. Last Sunday when I walked into his apartment with my sister and niece, he was sitting in his high chair having a snack. He looked at my sister and my niece with curiosity. He then looked my way and squealed, “Grammy!” That did it. The rest of my heart was dislodged. It no longer resides within me. He completed his task and has completely stolen my heart.
I will try to remember all the adventures I had the last week. They went by quickly, and this old Grammy brain needs to recapture the joy she lived the last week. The words need to be written so that I don’t forget them.
But, for now, I am home and missing Little Man. This morning while cleaning I caught myself singing ‘Baa, Baa, Black Sheep’. Of course it was the way Little Man sings that makes it so special. Here are his words of his song, “Baa, baa black sheep, have you any Grammy? Yes sir, yes sir she’s in my jammies.” There are also verses for the other people in his life, but this verse is my favorite… What a funny Little Man he is becoming. I am blessed in knowing him and am very sad in being back home now.
Thanks for stopping by, DAF
