The Tin Rabbit

I want to grab the little hands and run.
Through storm clouds breaking open and soaking our clothes
with big wet leaves slapping us in the face 
while kicking up slippery mud.

During the last few moments of summer there is no control.

Now I wake up with a headache.
Grinding my teeth maybe?
Too many oysters?
It's a dull throb in the temples and the Mookie is chewing on my arm.
I get up and make coffee because everyone else is still asleep and I might as well
straighten some things out.
It's still dark and that is good.
Hopefully it will by me some time.

There are so many things to be thankful for in this life.

Tonight I heard a true, genuine laugh from my oldest son.
He made me laugh and then he got his own joke and started laughing.
It was pure and relieving and just a really good moment.

It is second grade tomorrow.
He got his hair cut and he is so handsome.
I feel like this summer, with all of it's 
schedules and adjustments 
was a turning point.

I will have to think on that a bit more to flesh it out.
Put a pin in that.

I was going to have a beer but then I settled
on a chocolate chip cookie.
No regrets there.

Big day tomorrow.
Big days ahead.

Love you guys.

Early Morning Sesh

It's a real nice cast of characters around here.
Great colors abound

Radioactive Tech

I was thinking about going to the bathroom today 
and then there was a knock on the door, 
"Dad are you in there?"
"Oh good... Because my Technology is complete."
-"You made some Technology?"
"Yes, and it is finally finished. Can I show you? I won't open the door."
Before I can answer the door cracks and the Technology is revealed.
-"Wow, what is this?"
"It is a radioactive flashlight."
"Because it is a radio and also a flashlight."

Then later this happened.

The boy is going places.
