Simple Pleasures

Being with a kid is such a great excuse to enjoy all the simple pleasures. First thing on the list this morning was for Eli and me to buy 2 big pumpkins and 1 little one. Second thing, go to the thrift store to buy chalk, an airplane, a truck, books, man dolls (3 Kens-you know, Barbie and Ken). He promptly named one of them "My Steve", his dad who he doesn't see very much. I hit the jack pot finding fall tops and sweaters. Then it is home to walk the dog, have lunch which for him was "cereal salad"(remember howard and huntington kids?) For 2 hours I had the pleasure of noticing how engrossed he was in all those inexpensive items. Oh, I also got him a new, black baseball glove (2 bucks) and a softball and I don't think he had played catch before. That was fun. Now he is tuckered out waiting for me to read those books we got-yeah, think of us lounging on the couch with the fan blowing our way and the fall leaves racing across the lawn outside and a very good chance of some rain-one of those very wonderful Fall days. It reminds me of the good times I had with my little ones.

Yay, I got to read two new posts. I love these little glimpses into your day and your heart. Slows my pulse nicely for the few moments that I pause here. Keep it comin', Sista.

I remember cereal salad! and I remember Jedd sitting in Pax's high chair eating corn pops whenever we came over. I think it got to the point where he climbed in and waited to be served!:)

I don't think I ever felt that way the 3 years we were married without children. Damien, fascinating person that he is, captured all my attention! That can't be it though because you feel that way about Ben...hmmmm. I was 26 when I had Lowen who is 25 on the 4th!
