Suddenly, he opened the backdoor and said in as authoritative a voice as he could muster, "Rain, GO away!"
I both wanted to laugh and hug him while asking him to stay this way forever. Since I do not have the power to make time stand still, I decided I better write it down.
Perhaps one day I'll look into the eyes of my grown son and see glimpses of that two-year-old that just melts my heart.
Now, if only he did have the power to give us a breather from all these April showers!
At least they are all still on the couch, right?
The week before Easter, Tony dressed up as the Easter Bunny for an event hosted by the company where he works. Fortunately, our kids didn't let the other kids in the secret.
Happy Belated Easter! It's certainly one holiday that can never be celebrated enough!
Not a bit of makeup could be found on my face.
Still, my date proudly held my hand. Date night was his request.
We shopped, rode the carousel and shared a snack.
At the end of the night, as I stretched out beside him, he sweetly said, "I love you, Mom."
I gently kissed his forehead and quietly shut his door, but not before saying, "I love you too, my little man."
May this only be the beginning of many special outings together.
