Just took an evening walk with The Boy around the block, because today was a gorgeous day — 82 and sunny, and this evening was a perfect summery evening, where the temp in the house is about the same as it is out of the house, and neighbors are playing in the yard.
We held each other close and talked about things to come and the things around us like the birds, and why they eat worms.
I love these moments when I get to hold my boy’s hand, when he wants my arm around him, when he seeks hugs. I know that pretty soon, he may not seek me out for this kind of comfort anymore. These simple moments are precious, and I know it.
Love that boy!
