This image reminds me of a very
precious time in my life
when my children were just
little tykes, scampering and
playinng all over the house.
I can remember sitting down
to take a break from my
busy housework and picking up
the newspaper but instead of reading,
I was more interested in watching
my little ones playing together!
They are older now,
but we still find the time to
make tents with chairs and blankets,
creating papier mache with
flour, water, and newspaper,
fixing teddybear pancakes for the girls
and now football pancakes for the boys
(they've outgrown the teddy bears and rabbits)!
They are growing up so fast and as
I try to hold on to every precious minute,
one day, I know I will turn around and
they will be gone and living their own lives.
I think we'll have pancakes for supper tonight!
