Through the ayes of a child

And so now with the blog back I can mention that before all that, my husband was on the phone with our older son, who’d called with a computer question.

And in the background there was a game of Ring Around the Rosie going on and Parker’s delighted voice, playing with his Mommy: “We all fall DOWN!…AGAIN! All fall DOWN!…AGAIN!!”

And again and again, with the exuberant happiness of a little one. Priceless. Parker will be two in about two hours. Happy Birthday, sweetie, and thank you for all the love.

Happy two years being grandparents too! Uh, just don’t fall down. Unless controlled and with song. Celebrate!

Two – how did he get to be two already? Happy Birthday to Parker!

That unfettered exuberance, if only we could bottle it and save it for when they are sulky teenagers and dose them with a bit of it. Or ourselves.

(Of course Parker will never be sulky around his grandma, I’m sure.)
