Tonight I had a moment
when I stopped, breathed deeply and realized
as colored leaves were slowly swirling down from the trees,
the temperature was perfect
and all three kids were having a great time.
These are the days.
Memories are being made.
Friendships with neighbors are deepening their roots through shared experiences.
Little red cheeks are stuffed with candy as they giggle and pant.
The costumes don't matter.
The moment really does.
This is the good stuff.
And for those of you that have been reading long enough to remember "The Shark that Ate My Pride," you will appreciate that K has kept her Halloween track record going strong!
Parenthood is an amazing ride. :)
