A conversation with Macie:

Me: Macie, did you put something in the EZ Bake Oven?

Macie(smiles cutely, but ignores the question)

Me: Macie, tell mommy the truth.

Macie: I don't know the truth.

Normal day,
let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you,
love you,
bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by
in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may,
for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut,
or raise my hands to the sky and want,
more than all the world, your return.
~Mary Jean Iron


NOTE: Special thanks to Becky, my blogging friend extraordinaire, for the pic and poem. Thanks Becky!

Right after I wrote that I remembered when I used to make you mad when I would change something you made. I am thinking of crooked words in my head but I can't remember the exact situation... do you know what I am talking about?

I think that was when we both made scrapbooks of our summer and then shared them with each other and you were not a fan of me having crooked words or something like that. You are totally welcome to google an image for me. I have a million pictures of Macie but I just was putting something up quick. :)

Thank you for approving of my help!
I am going to link you to Communal Global's thing tomorrow too. Cooking helps you relax : )
Or at least it helps Macie relax!
Do you know why I go to everyone's junk mail? Isn't that weird? I am not junk... : )

gretchen said...

I suppose I should finish the story...she never did put anything in the EZ Bake- she was just looking ornery and being mysterious.
