Another day, another park.....

It has been 14.5 years since I have had just one child.
It has been 7 years since I have had a five year old.
It has been 6 days since I have seen Zachary and Madison.
It has been 5 weeks and 6 days since I have seen Michael.
As a result of the above data,
it has been less than 1 day since I've been to a park.

Less than one day since I've chased a screaming little girl around a playground.


Less than one day since I've heard "mommy, watch this!"
repeated
7
million
times.



Less than one day since I've been mistaken as a mom of one.




Less than one day since I've watched her theatrics and chuckled to myself about how so much life can be contained in one little body.





Less than one day since I've focused my lens solely on capturing her soul shining through her eyes.





Less than one day since I've been begged for "just one more time down the slide!"




Less than one day since I've been chief swing pusher ....


and giggle inducer.



Less than one day since she's grabbed my hand
and caused me to see the world as she does.




Less than one day since we've delighted in each other's company.
It's now one day less that we'll have to spend one on one like this.
We are blessed one day at a time.

I can hear her giggle on the swing :) great pics as always. Don't you hate it having people think you only have one child? Jesse and Emily were gone for 2 weeks...I was constantly telling people oh no I have 4!
