Today I asked the kids what they want to be when they grow up.
This is my finest parchment paper, my favorite pen. It is mine but it is theirs.
I seal their answers here, fold them carefully and tuck them into a porcelain memory box, my snapshot of now.
Ashlyn turned in my general direction to say, “what Mom?” managing to roll her eyes and turn her head, headphones still balanced mid ear, iPod humming.
Sawyer wants to be a monkey and asked for the Monkey Song so incessantly I had to pause all questioning to turn it on.
Parker will be a helicopter, of course.
And McKenna wants to wear my wedding dress while she drives a black mini-van.
I’m living the life dreams are made of.
Folded, tucked away.
After I find a way to reach the gas pedal under all this tulle I will be over at Truthful Mommy’s place sharing a truth I have learned about motherhood.
And, with an apron on to protect my beading and satin, I made an easy Father’s Day craft over at SheKnows that I would love for you to try.
