Bring it on Summer!
We are so dang ready for your amazing-ness.
These guys are doing important work.
My Pearl for myself (and for you if you'd like to join me) is to just let them do it. Relax and don't worry about the ripped sundresses or the mud pit or the sandy hands.
Hand them the water hose anyway. Let them get to the serious business of being a kid. Let the shoes come off. Have picnics. Eating outside is like winning the kid lottery. And yeah, popsicles with sand on them are gross, but I'm not gonna stress about that.
We waited a long time for Spring and Summer. We suffered through what I'm sure was the Plague. We wished for this time to play outside with wild abandon. No fevers. No flu. We dreamed of it's awesomeness. We knew it would rule.
And now it's here.
So I'm vowing to chill out, step back a bit and let these two turkeys lead whenever I see the chance. I think it's going to be fun. And also muddy.
Oh, Hello! I'm Colleen and I do the writing and mama-ing around these parts. I'm glad you're here. I hope you stick around .
Because I like you.
