In all of the hustle and bustle of being a “single” parent, it sometimes can be difficult to just stop and play with the kiddos. Today, while we had two hours of sunshine, I rushed out to the back yard with the two of them and picked up the remainder of the downed branches from our storm a couple of weeks ago. Girl asked if they could swing for a bit, and if I’d push them. Something told me that I needed my camera, and that feeling was right on. The two of them laughed and kicked their feet, soul-laughing at the fun they were having swinging and the attention they were getting. I got this one of Girl, and knew it was this week’s 52. It perfectly shows her innocence, and her worry-free happiness in that moment. The shoes on the wrong feet don’t hurt the “moment” either. She does that all the time, and usually I catch it and have her fix it. I’m kind of glad I missed it this time, and that it became part of my digital recording of her today. Even though I am grateful that they are growing up strong, healthy, happy, and smart, I still enjoy these moments that remind me that they are still my babies. Thank You, God, for these moments for they make my heart grow even larger than I knew possible with love for these two. It also keeps me from putting them out when they are frustrating. Just saying :).
