Day 4 – Playing with Fire

Oy – my youngest – my dare devil – my experimenter.

IMG_5699Today he decided to try out something he saw online…oy! Not the first time nor the last I’m sure.
IMG_1564It involved a pumpkin and some chemicals…I was a little frightened but wanting to support his endeavor I said go ahead…oy!

I love when he gets an idea and makes it happen.  I love his initiative.  I love his curiosity.  I love his determination. I love the laughter and the tense few minutes as he shares his experiment…praying that it all goes well.  I love his sense of pride at the success.

These are the days I feel especially blessed to be his mother and share these adventures.

These are the days I’m gonna miss.

xoxo – DM
