At the Farm

One of the beauties of children. You, as a parent, make a special trip to the donkey farm which you are excited to see how much the kids will love it.

Then, they are more interested in the rocks, fields and various equipment than the donkeys 90% of the visit. I guess I should have known; considering the box and tissue paper is a huge hit at Christmas Time.

I love it!

Jump with all your might! Bend at the knees…

There is so much to learn from children. If only I could watch and catch every moment.

Every hop, giggle and looonngggg JUMP.

Five minute Friday: Fall

Children are the most beautiful thing in this, my, world. I fell for you when you were a peanut in an ultrasound photo.
Whenever I sit down on the floor you practice your running long jump. As your body slams into my chest we fall back as our legs fly into the air. The sound of you laughing and that pure joy in your eyes makes me light up while my heart beats fast, for you. Exhilaration…

Your playroom is my latest project. Daddy is the King of do-it-yourself and this room he will build is going to make you jump out of your skin with excitement!

A sneaky hidden reading nook. A craft table with all the fixens. That easel grandpa made me. Ooww… A wall of chalkboard.

Up until now I have felt I am protecting you from falling. This is good, isn’t it? I’m not so sure. Most need to live and learn, for themselves. The hard lessons are usually the ones that make the biggest impact. But you are my baby, toddler baby.

So designing this space is me letting go just a little. I have big ideas with vision that surpasses what the room can hold. I’m talking treehouse with slide and swing. Climb, climb and explore!
I know that you are a very independent little soul and will likely grow up faster than some. So I will nourish and enjoy “playtime” for all it’s precious moments. Let’s do this!

Mommy will always try her best to protect you from falling. The falling that hurts and leaves a scar; inside or out.

In the meantime I’m going to teach you how to fall safely. Hopping on cushions, climbing ‘mountains’ and zooming down that slide as fast as you can. Even if you want to go head first…”Cring”.

Those are my Five Minutes on the prompt “Fall”.
Every Friday The Gypsy Mama posts a word prompt. For five minutes you set the clock and write, unscripted without worry of grammar mistakes or if anyone will even read it. Just because we love to write.
