play.time

No self-portrait today. Don't have the time for time. We are busy getting ready for company!

My mom arrives tomorrow. Reading Amanda's post today I thought about my girls' relationship with their "Grammy" and how important it will always be. I love watching them play together. My mom has a patience that escapes me - no matter how hard I try. And an imagination rivaled only by the big bug herself. I can recall hours spent playing with my mom. And have no idea when she got everything else done that had to get done! The things I can't seem to get done... The big bug has been counting down the sleeps until her arrival for weeks now. She can't wait to play! I read with envy that Stephanie's parents have moved closer to their grandkids. (Have I mentioned how happy I am she is blogging again? So happy!) It really would feel like winning the lottery to have her near! Oh, if only we could lure Mom off the prairie to SoCal. Somehow I doubt it. But maybe meet in the middle? (1280 miles for us, 1786 for you... not bad!)

I am going to take a few days off to play too. To travel to far off lands with them. And see what I learn...

Sounds like fun! Enjoy your travels. And PS, I bet she felt like she didn't get everything done either, but somehow it all works out in the long run. I've read your blog, you are so clearly a good mom.
