I'd forgotten about that until just the other day, when an impulse directed me to the front door. "No snack in front of the TV today, boys. We're going to take it outside."
It was lovely, greeting the now-familiar neighbors as they arrived home from school.
It was lovely, watching the breeze and swatting at bugs.
It was lovely, laughing and talking to each other - not Jake.
It was lovely, remembering how far I've come on this motherhood journey: No longer feeling pent up after long days, but rather, savoring each moment. (At least, most of the time.)
I think we will make the front steps a summer tradition.
