My View

Joining Lisa-Jo today for Five Minute Friday


Set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right.
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
START
They are giggling together while playing near the water. Each carrying a bag of nuggets. It is dinner at the park night. The oldest helps his little brother on the rocky ground. The youngest with his chubby hands holds tight to his brother's hand. 

I am a boy mom and this is my world in front of me. I stay at home with them. I teach them. I cuddle with them. I get paid in kisses and hugs. 
When I daydreamed when I was young I didn't see it like this but I love it way more than my dreams. These two boys are the best ever. 
"Mom can you help me? I want to make a fishing pole?" 

I get up early each morning hoping for those few quiet moments, but they hear me and are up. I am grateful for these little years. They want to be with me and want to be up when I am up. Soon they will older and want to go play ball with their friends. I will enjoy these few years of grace, love and long days that soon will be short. 
END
Thank you for stopping by today!

  1. You summed it up simply, perfectly, and eloquently...the mothering view.
    You're wise to appreciate it now and not sink into the "when they are older it will be..." trap, just simply enjoying today for today.
    Cheers.

  3. Yes, these precious years flies so quickly! Enjoy your boys and savor all those kisses and hugs. I wish we could save them for later on when they are big and rather want to kiss a girlfriend that a mom!
    Much love from FMF
