Tiny moments – words to remember

During lunch I suggested we might take a hike on the trail before heading home .

E: Okay. Do you mean we will we go in the car to get to the trail?”

Me: yes we will

E: Then this is the best day ever!

This boy has learned to embrace joy (gets that from his mama). So off we went, with Roo tucked securely inside his jacket, to the pipeline trail. I knew we would see goats, horses, and maybe some sheep. I also figured it wouldn’t be crowded because it was overcast. Up the hill, down the hill, swishing through the grass. We walked a bit further than those little legs could manage so he needed a lift for part of the return trip.

Lifting him up I said; “Oh my, you are getting so big!” to which he responded, “That’s my favorite thing you say gramma.”

  1. Thank you for sharing this sweet story. (I really needed that.) How lucky you are to have that tiny (but growing!) child in your days. XO

  2. THAT was the most beautiful thing I’ve read this morning. What a delight, that little boy—and how wise you are to record it.

  3. Thank you for sharing this beautiful story. Being with our tiny people brings us such joy, doesn’t it?

  4. I love how everything is so exciting and so full of joy for the little ones! I miss that with my own kiddo (who is now a tween and rolls her eyes at everything). Enjoy these tiny moments!
