    telling me a story
    animated faces
    shooting webs from their wrists
    imaginary lightening from their fists
    sweat and pizza bring them joy
    best words to describe them is “all boy”

    cocoa butter on their scratches
    who can race each other the fastest
    brand new nike’s
    untied laces
    bubble gum and sugar on their faces
    watching them from the window brings me joy
    best words to describe them is “all boy”

    to my sons, mommy loves you.

    YEAH!

    I raised four, one I gave birth and three by choice.
    And girl the images of my lil men running and playing
    like they were getting paid and that puppy smell
    that they all have from hard play...Ummmmmmm...
    I miss it! My boys are all grown up. Working on the
    next episode and all I can do is watch from the window
    to tired to run and play catch for too long. I do a lil something
    with the great nephews but it's not the same.
    Thanks for the beautiful memory you evoked.
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
