Feeding Ducks Is Like A Religious Experience
Feeding the ducks with the Goddess is like a religious experience. Sometimes just being with her is like that for me (tearing up as I write this). I wished for many years for a baby girl. Losing my mom so young really made me hunger for a mother-daughter relationship and I love spending time with her.
Today, on a beautiful fall morning, we went to feed the ducks in town while waiting for Handsome to come out of school, there were none.
She was throwing bread to nothing. The water was still, and empty. I asked her where she thought all the ducks were. She said, “I don’t know, maybe they are home with their mommies (cute).” Then she stood at the deck, put her hands around her mouth and yelled, “Ducks, ducks…where RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu?Wouldn’t you know it, they came. Tons of them just started flying across the water towards us. Crazy.
The Goddess’s 2nd Day Of Pre-School
Tuesday was the Goddess’ very first day at pre-school and she did fab!
Mom on the other hand was a bit of a mess.
I can’t say I was worried, just a little melancholy that my baby was going to leave me for 2.5 hours, two days a week.
Her dad and I were sure that she would have fun, we also were sure that she wouldn’t miss us, her brother is in the same place so they would have each other.
From the moment she woke up at 7:00 she was ready for school. She wanted to get dressed right away and we had to keep reminder her that school wasn’t open yet.
She asked about 15 times before 9:00 “can we please go to school now.”
Unfortunately it rained so I was unable to get any good pictures of her going in. I took some but I am not happy with any. My husband was with us and I always feel silly whipping out the camera every second.
Bad Mommy moment – I had promised her that she would be getting a balloon. We had brought one on Monday for her brother’s first day and she asked for one the whole day. I promised her that I would get her one on HER first day. Since it was her first day, I refused to leave town. Honestly, I doubt I will be leaving for the next 2 months).
I walked into the class and both my kids ran over to hug my legs and say hello. My son was first, followed by the Goddess. Her first words….”Hi mommy, where’s my balloon?”
We did go out to get one right after but how awesome would it have been if I had walked in with it???!!!
Here are the few I did manage to get.
Ruby Tuesday – The Canoe
To participate or check out some great Ruby Red pictures, head over to Work of the Poet.
I went walking last night with the kids looking for a Ruby Red submission. I found this canoe hanging up on a telephone pole. Why the bear sign is upside down is beyond me.
Sky Watch – Friday
My very first Sky Watch.
Here is the Sky and they are watching it.
Ruby Tuesday – Flowers
Mary is going to start charging me rent, I can’t help placing as many ruby red pictures on her site as possible.
Here is another Ruby Red submission from the botanical gardens. It was a little sad to see the end of summer showing up on all the flowers. They were still vibrant on top but brown and dying on the bottom.
