Is it Monday already? Jeez. I can literally see the days ticking off until my son graduates kindergarten. This morning, he wanted to sleep in instead of going to school, and I let him. This will be the one "tardy" scar on his report card, but so be it. We have to make the best of this time while we have it. These last days are short, as I imagine the coming summer months will be over before I know it. And, pardon if I'm sounding a wee bit "glass half full"-ish, as the opposite is the case. Sometimes I feel like my son's glass is so full, that it's actually overflowing and, in turn, washing me away entirely. But that's love and life for ya.
For the next few weeks, I'll take the boy in my arms and read and read and read, in hopes that the words will bring him closer. That all the thousands of letters and thoughts will wrap around him and bind him to me, forever. Or at least, until he slips away.
If they could just stay little...
Ah, but we're not here to talk about growing up this morning. No. We are here to give a book away. The book up for grabs is a nice, vintage copy of Little Black Goes to the Circus! by Walter Farley. All you have to do to be entered to win is comment on this post between now and April 24, Sunday at 11:59 PM. A winner will be selected at random and announced the next morning.
As such, the winner of last week's give of Calico the Wonder Horse is Jennifer Miller. Congrats! E-mail me your info to webe(at)soon(dot)com, and I'll (try to) get it right out to you.
Read along on Facebook, tumblr, Twitter and Etsy!
