Today's magic

It's the end of the day, and I almost don't want this day to end. There was just something magical about today and how Fly and I related to each other.

It wasn't that he didn't misbehave. But Fly did actually listen to me today. It probably helps that he is speaking more in real sentences now.

Fly seemed unusually contented. He sang songs with me while we waited in line at the store. He pointed out all the red lights, green lights and yellow lights as we drove in the car. Fly ate plenty at lunch. Then he patiently (!) waited for me to clean up afterward so we could play outside -- for an hour. He napped without a fight. He read some word cards. Fly even tried two new foods at dinner. He didn't want to go to bed tonight -- he wanted to stay up and sing songs with me. But I put on some music for him to listen to while he fell asleep.

I know better than to expect Fly will be the same tomorrow. He is ever growing and changing. There are hardly two days alike for him. And that makes today's magic even more fleeting and sweet.

I'm always amazed at how much my kid changes day to day. One day, a while ago, she tried string beans, decided she liked thema nd now eats them all the time. Thank you God!! LOL

Days when it all is definitely worth it! It always is, of course, but sometimes it's hard to remember that, I know... :) He is really growing up!

This post tugged at my heartstrings. There ARE some days when everything just clicks and we connect on such a wonderful level. So happy you and Fly shared that!

Those are the best days. I must admit that picture made me kind of sad because he is such a big boy. Kids just grow up too FAST!

I LOVE days like this, even though they're so rare in my house. You've captured the simple wonder of it beautifully.

Aren't days like that wonderful?

I can't believe how big he's gotten. He 's not a baby or a toddler anymore. He's a little boy!

P.S. I'm so impressed that he's reading already! Do you do those word cards with him every day?
