Them opening their mouths for a bite, us carefully shoving it in there. And yes, they actually chirped and flapped their imaginary wings; they thought is was quite fun. I thought of it as a good way to not have the only two forks we had end up as digging tools and us having to eat with our hands. Although I bet that would have been fun too.
It’s all about being flexible. Spontaneous. And NOT perfect. I find that’s when things get really really fun.
After we fed our chicks, and ourselves, and the sun had set behind Lanai, the kids played chase with Daddy. I was the “safe spot”, meaning my son would run up/into me, spraying sand all over me and declaring “Mom is Safe!” I still have sand in my pockets. (always the evidence of a good, fun day!)
And then as I was putting things away, I opened my fortune cookie and read….
“TODAY WILL BE LUCKY AND MEMORABLE FOR YOU”
Yes, indeed! I feel so blessed, so LUCKY and the memories? Priceless!
Today was a FUN day!
