Time Well Spent

This time last week:
With child in arms, I moved to the rocking chair.  My Munchkin started to hum because, you see, it became rote that I would start by singing "Jesus Loves Me," followed by "Rock-a-My-Soul." He was rested after Jesus Loves me, then as I started Rock-A his little fingers reached to knit through my hair. The hard realization hit ... this time tomorrow my Munchkin who stole my heart will be on his way back to Germany. Tears still sting my checks. But, I count my blessings and Pray for his Mother's safe trip out of Afghanistan.
So if you wonder where I've been keeping myself during Jan. and Feb. you see there have been balls thrown for Chloe (our chocolate lab), trips to Bouncing Bears, Incredible Pizza, Mercer Arboretum, and Old MacDonald's Farm. I've watched a toddler turn into an almost little boy (yesterday he attempted a skip) After all the activity I've been rocking my Munchkin! Now time to wash my face before he wakes up or his dad gets back from errand running.

Babies Don't Keep
I hope my children will look back on today
And see a mother who had time to play.
There will be years for cleaning and cooking
But children grow up while we're not looking.
Dusting and scrubbing can wait 'till tomorrow
For babies grow fast we learn to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs and dust go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.

Time flies when we are having fun.  I can't believe it's only been a week since my living room has turned from toddler safe and Family Folk music playing on Pandora, to simple quiet space.  Time to get back to the business of Real Estate! Let's go look for your Place to Call Home!
