Trucks, scooters, dirt
and shades of blue,
But little boys can be angels too
"Little Boy Blue"
Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia
All consuming panic, disorder and chaos. There were many tiring and frustrating days (maybe even months!) I spent wishing time would move by quicker when Thing #1 was a young boy. In retrospect, I unfortunately got my wish and learned....never wish away time, no matter how difficult some of those times might be. Thing #1 has morphed into a 26 year old man I am so very proud of. But before they can be men, they must be boys. And the job description calls for fatiguing their moms. So I couldn't help but laugh "all-knowingly" when I saw this little boy blue scooting by in Rittenhouse Square....with his mom trailing waaaaay behind in pursuit, eating his dust. I miss those days AND my nicely toned legs that went along with all that chasing I had to do!
