Today we rode to Wilder Ranch. It was cold, but so beautiful…hazy with a tiny bit of sun peeking through. We weren’t there for very long but it was amazing. We watched the chickens, tossed the baseball a little bit, and visited the horses. We gave them a couple of carrots and had our own snacks and were about to leave when I remembered that I had brought my camera. I caught a couple of funny ones of the boys and Pat got a few frames with the boys and I. That is when I remembered that our baby will be 18 months in a couple of days. A year and a half. I can’t quite get my head around it. We rode home with the wind at our backs, made dinner and had hot chocolate to warm up. I think the hot chocolate may have been the highlight for the big brother.
These ordinary days are what make my life feel so meaningful.

I never thought I’d ever sit on the floor in my pajamas well past noon with my 1 year old while we ate cauliflower and read “little quack” and “bobo” over and over again. I never figured I’d allow my child to devour leftover birthday cake and ice cream on a day that he’s too sick to go to school. If you asked me 10 years ago if I thought I’d ever or lust over minivans or go to the gym at midnight or if I’d list legos as one of my hobbies I probably would have said no.
I would’ve been wrong.
