Will's Birthday Rising Out of the Long Cold Winter of 2010






I cannot believe baby Will is six. I know Moms say that all the time and it is pretty boring to read, but too bad. This is my blog. Dear reader, can you tell I have been under some strain these recent months? Well, I rectified that! We got our new dog Beans to celebrate Will's #6 birthday. We took him to Kindergarten for cupcakes with the class. Basically, we all have really enjoyed Beans' total takeover of our lives the last few weeks. Well, strike that. Ha, ha - I have really enjoyed it, funny enough. Beans is a sweet little naughty French Bulldog and I am glad to be his new owner. He relieves stress and makes me smile.

From 'To A Young Son' by Julia Johnson Davis

In your face I sometimes see
Shadowings of the man to be,
And eager, dream of what my son
Will be in twenty years and one.

But when you are to manhood grown
And all your manhood ways are known,
Then shall I, wistful, try to trace
The child you once were in your face?

MY LITTLE ONE - By Tennessee Williams

My little one whose tongue is dumb, whose fingers cannot hold to things, who is so mercilessly young, he leaps upon the instant things, I hold him not.

Indeed, who could? He runs into the burning wood. Follow, follow if you can! He will come out grown to a man and not remember whom he kissed, who caught him by the slender wrist and bound him by a tender yoke which, understanding not, he broke.

Poem

We are so very glad that you are happy...
long may you keep so, my dear boy...
May you go on as well
as you have begun.
- Charles Darwin
