POTW...random photo


Nothing exciting to post...just plugging along with school & work & trips to car shows (for Anthony). This is a photo I snapped when Wes was messing around with our kitten being silly. He looked out the window for a second with this serious expression on his face and I captured it. If you know Wesley, he's not a "serious" child. I wouldn't want it to be any other way, though. I've become really sentimental in the last few weeks about how fast he is growing up. It's all too true what people saw to new parents all the time, "Cherish them while they're babies. The next time you turn around they'll be starting kindergarten." So, for all you new (& old parents out there...and to myself), remember to really be in the moment with your children...hear what it is they're saying, study their expressions and their mannerisms so you won't be sitting at their high school graduation thinking, "Where did the my little boy/girl go? I can't believe this is already here." So, that's my philosophical moment for the day (if you can even call it that). Happy Thursday to all you faithful POTW readers :)

I love this picture Mindy.
AND you are so right. How time flies. I remember visiting you at the hospital after you had Wesley. Doesn't seem that long ago!
