Several drafts are in the queue, so check back soon. In the meantime, I simply love this tidbit from our afternoon together......
Today Aidan informed me that he knows just what he wants his next birthday party theme to be (his MAY birthday party) - "I'd like to have a science, reading, and math birthday party. We'll do experiments, and read books that go with them, and do math stuff. It will be awesome."

That's my boy.

I've fallen out of the habit of recording these quotable quotes, so I'm redoubling my effort to jot down these priceless moments. Following another writer's suggestion, I have a small journal (embellished with a large "Q" for "quotes") that I keep in my nightstand, and I try to remember to record these gems as they happen. On nights when I feel heavy-hearted, or need a good laugh, or when I am deeply reveling in the joy of my children, I pull out this small book and remember these seemingly unforgettable moments in their lives... only to realize that I have forgotten so much, and thus feel so grateful that I took the time to bear witness, to record, and in doing so, to remember.
