you can't do it all.......


The onset of warmer days has brought about a new surge of interest in spending as many hours outdoors as possible.....and with that comes a wee one's very strong disapproval of naps in utter fear that precious time will be lost racing his brother in the big wheels. Many a "suspicious" quiet moment will lull me into the family room to discover a very exhausted little soul fast asleep on his books....his little three year old body winning the battle against the "five" year old mindset that he can go all day just like his brother. After a good hour of rest he lifts up his carpet patterned cheeks, jumps to his feet, and runs back outside to play for yet another round of big wheel racing before the three year old body wins again....although this time he joins his tired 5 year old brother as they crash for 13 hours before yet another day outside...........oh how I love this time of year......

How totally sweet!
I absolutely love that photo and everything that it means. Bring on the days of big wheel-filled summer!
