So! As soon as I got home from work, she is standing in front of me with a big ‘ole grin looking like she’s up to something.
Then she blurts it out! “Mom, can we take a walk to the park- please?”
In my mind I’m thinking… Shoot! I just walked in.
But — that quickly changes to — wait! Not cool “MOM” .
So! Of course, I say yes… “even though I am exhausted from the long drive home”.
As I’m walking, she’s riding her bike. Singing “you are my sunshine, my only shunshine — you make me happy, when skies are grey”
then, periodically yelling:
“Mom- do you want me to slow down for you”. As if she is going so fast.
We get to the park, sit down in the middle of a big empty, freshly cut lawn. You know — Hanging out… Just chillin’
Then, we see a pair of ducks hanging out near by.
Hannah’s checking them out /// outta the corner of her eye.
‘Careful not to make any sudden moves…’
All of a sudden they walk right up to us.
(Hannah was getting a kick outta this)!!!
They walk right up! Sit down and just Chill. It was pretty cool.
I know- who cares — they’re just ducks!
But, honestly We’re kinda scared of ducks…
“Those beaks they have look pretty fierce”!
But — these two had no hidden agenda!
They were just so peaceful & calm.
They literally were just sitting there & my little “nature girl” was enjoying every minute.
It was time for them to go…
Stopping to smell the “wanna be” roses…
I love that we can do little things like this and have such a great time.
I love that she sees the beauty in the simplest things like:
-Hanging with these two little ducks
-Stopping to smell the wanna be “Roses”
-& watching the SUN SET!!!
“couldn’t of asked for a better evening- with my girl.”
Always make the time – to create memories with your littles 😀
“you won’t regret it!”
