make a wish.....
monday night....seth started planting the garden and I mowed the lawn....and ella has a fascination with dandelions. it really is quite sweet. i have received several bouquets from her already. after i finished mowing, i got my camera out and went to see the progress they were making. ella ran over to me with this huge bouquet for me, and i was able to explain to her about making a wish....well she fell in love with the idea and has been making wishes ever since!! it is such a joy to have those quiet moments where you can live life through your child's eyes. innocent, sweet and completely enamored with new things.
sometimes the weight of the world gets so heavy for me as an adult, and i long for the carefree childhood i so enjoyed. i just hope moments like these are enough to remind me not to take everything so seriously. and i hope my kids STOP growing up so fast, and take time to enjoy where they are!
and yes....ella is back into 'swim suit' mode! HELP!!!
