he is four, he calls us mom and dad (mommy and daddy only during extreme duress during tickle fights) he discusses the star wars time lines and knows the philosophical differences between jedi and sith (well basically). he insists on giving the dogs their treats and if one gets one, the other gets one, both with pats on the head and endearments, he can make his own lego cruisers and can show the other kids around noggin.com and playhouse.disney.com – so soon – I hear thirteen in his voice and sometimes the echo of someone much older..
it’s hard not to cling to him and wish he would stay a little bean but I tell myself, what we’re doing is for him, not for us, we’re raising a healthy happy child to grow into a happy healthy adult, just enjoying the brief moment as much as we can. that is enough.
enjoy your weekend everyone :) happy friday
