The walk to school

Alan’s been called to jury duty today so he had me take Angel to daycare. I enjoy those walks because it’s one of the “Mommy and me times” that I really treasure with Angel.

His hand feels different yet as comforting now that he grips back. And we usually have our little talks along the way, usually about good manners and right conduct. When he’s in the mood, we sing. Today, he just wanted to talk.

He’s really grown up to be quite a boy.. I marvel at how much he’s grown this past year. He never fails to surprise us with unexpected utterances like “You’re frustrated, mommy.”. One time he just says “I’m starving..”. And of course nothing beats “I love you, Mommy.”
