squeezing my sons when they were little, having them sit on my lap and read.....
The look of "thrill" in their faces when they learned something new.
Spending days making bubbles and watching Sesame Street, ThunderCats and Transformers....
The new baby smell.
My first 3 cars were Karmen Ghias, first one was delivered when I was almost 16 years old...... 4 on the floor and that little green bug felt like a sports car. Throw change in the back passenger floorboard and scoop out handfuls to pay for gas.....full tank would last about one week and I drove as much as I could.
playing cribbage and beating old men. My father taught me how to play when I was 4, when we went to Iowa for a family visit my great uncle grudgingly played an 8 year old girl who proceeded to skunk him.
Playing Mah Jong with other stay at home moms......once a week we'd camp out and play for 4-5 hours. What fun!
Taking glass blowing classes then eating in 5 bean restaurants for lunch in New Orleans......getting back in time to pick up preschoolers.
Celebrating April Fool's Day with 5 year olds.
Tea Parties with my middle child.....(now a junior at West Point).....4 year olds with linen napkins, antique tea cups, fun sandwiches and pastries.
Can you imagine the pictures?
How about making popscicles with fruit juice and tupperware containers?
NOT LOST FOREVER>>>>>>>>
oh, guys records are still viable, I have a player in my bedroom and just dusted off Bread, GrassRoots, Jefferson whatevers, ELO, Alan Parsons Project, ZZ, Jethro Tull, The Who, Henry Gross,Al Hurt, Herb Alpert and the Tijiana Marumba Band.....
etc albums......picked up some more gems at a record store and garage sales. What is trully baffling is that I'm buying some of the same records I already own. Anyone need a copy of "Best of Bread" or Thick as a Brick
Glass bottled milk still in fridge, $1.50 deposits on the 1/2 gallon jar, $1 for the pint.....that are just so cute I keep um to drink out of.........
Tomatoes still smelling and tasting like the real deal
we still pick berries each year, make jam (no parifin but really good jam) and pickles
cooking with all your senses.....
