ice cream before dinner is ok

and ice cream for dinner is even better

Sometimes ice cream as big as your head

is the way it should be.

And the ice cream stand should be older

than you are

Because sometimes

childhood is fleeting

And dancing in car with Daddy

in the driveway

is more important than baths or bedtimes.

Sometimes we remember that the moments are few and far between, and some day these boys will not need or want us as much as they do now.

Sometimes cherishing these special moments with my boys are more important than any schedule or fully balanced meal.

Sometimes I just want to know when my boys look back at their childhood - in pictures and in memories -they will remember these special little moments we shared, and all the love that we had.


  1. I LOVE this post. Memories are what it all about. Thanks for the reminder. BTW I know you already know this..But your boys are too cute.

  2. AMEN!

    (And the reason my boy has had a few missed baths this summer... so much fun that we are worn out before we can wash off the evidence of it :)

  3. I agree with you--sometimes you just need to throw the schedule and the rules out the window!

  4. Well said, Liz. As the mother of two grown sons, I can tell you that you're absolutely right!
