sebastian's birthday went off without a hitch.
we honored him with a surprise birthday dinner
at his favorite sushi restaurant, with his favorite group of people.
how many years do I have left like these?
years when all my boy really wants for his birthday is a new pair of rain boots?
(life is pretty sweet at seven.)
but really, how many years do I have left like these?
years filled with mornings that still start with the four of us snuggled up
together in momma and papas bed.
years filled with nights,where I read bedtime stories
and lye in bed with my little ones watching them
as they slowly slip into dreamland.
years with dirty carpets and stained t-shirts, bruised legs and toothless smiles.
i hope for many more of these such years,
although lately, i feel as through time is escaping me.
we went to the ranch last week with a group of Brooklyn's friends.
(it was so much fun.)
if you loose sight of the brilliance of everyday life,
spend a few hours with a three years old,
be reminded of joy in it's simplest form.
i hope this week finds you well.
(i'll have something fun for you in a few days from now.)
