Last night The B Man drew this picture and dictated the words of his original “short” story to me. It says, “One day baby decided to go to the park. He talked to his Daddy, his Daddy said yes and he brought his two babies to the park and they played & played & played.”
I sat and watched him while he drew each tree, each mouse and the grass and then later added the sky and sun to “complete the picture.”
There really isn’t that much signifigance to this drawing, except that I just wanted to preserve it, here on the blog and in my memory. I want to be able to go back and see what his five-year old little mind was thinking and creating at this time in his life. And I want to remember our time together as we worked on his “project” as mother and son, laughing and smiling the whole way through…
I also want to say Happy Birthday to my mother today. She was born on this day, in 1939. Thanks Mom, for always being here when I have a baby (hint, hint for this time too…) and for being one of the best cooks ever. For loving us unconditionally and without judgement. For giving SO much of yourself to your children and grandchildren. She’s MANY other things to me and my family and I could go on and on… I honor and pray for her today, on the 70th anniversary of her birth.
For more WordFUL Wednesday go see Angie at Seven Clown Circus.
