This morning I got up and did a quick check of the garden, took a walk, and did three loads of laundry.
But in my mind, I was 972 miles away in Richmond Virginia. Playing ready, set, GO, with Katharine Ray...
... and learning all about Optimal Primus, Rescuebots, and Transformers from Garrett and Gavin. Who, by the way, never stop moving. Ever. Unless they are trying to talk you into a game of chase or eating pizza.
I was also schooled in the fine art of chap stick application by Allie Grace, and we all marveled at how Griffin just smiled. No matter what.
I am not sure how I arrived at this point in my life unaware of the bliss that is having a toddler come racing towards me at full steam, grab my legs, bury her face for a second, and then look up at me with a face full of happiness. Melts all your internal organs. Every. Single. One.
