The Sweetest Hours

May 18, 2012

My Favorite part of the day is late afternoon, Those sweet hours from 3pm until 6pm.


When I was a teenager it meant that school was done for the day and I could go home and nap until dinner time...or it meant cheer practice was going to start (I know surprise surprise I was a cheerleader in school! "GO EAGLES"

In my 20's it meant that I was finished work for the day (gotta love breakfast diners! Do De Dutch!) and I could head home for a nap

but in my 30's it means PLAY TIME!! You see late afternoon is when my lil man wakes up from his nap and calls "MAMA" I open the door to his room and receive the biggest smile ever and a sleepy snuggle! On rainy days we snuggle on the couch and watch "Thomas the tank engine" or sit at his train table and put together his puzzles. On sunny days we get to head out to the back yard with are 2 beagle smeagles and sometimes our escape artist of a cat. Lil man drives around in his car with his paints loaded up in the trunk (don't ask. I believe it is a phase) while I watch and wonder "when did he get so big? and then before I get all weepy with "where is the time going?"  I get coaxed into pushing his car around while he "DRIVES" and before we know it ... its dinner time and then bed time the best part is I get to do it all over again tomorrow.... 



Happy FRIDAY!!!!

XOXO

  3. Oh my, that is the sweetest post. Love it. How do you fit in making dinner?! I remember when my boys were napping (forever ago!!) and they would always wake up just as I was about to start dinner...

    I'm all sentimental now! Yes, where is the time going?!!! :)
