Yesterday, Sam is leaving to walk the dog.. He's actually going to this chore willingly as he has decided to rollerblade with Ernie. It's an " I can't watch" event for me however, and I sent him out the door with several warnings. " Don't let Ernie start running or you won't be able to stop him" He opens the door, " Stay off the road" as he steps sideways down the front stairs " Is your helmet tight enough?" not even a backward glance at me... "Watch out for cars, I don't want to scrape you off the road" It turns out that was one nag too many for him, cause he shot back "You ALWAYS say that! Maybe you actually have a burning desire to scrape me off the road and you just havn't acknowleged it!!"

who writes for this kid?

The Length of my Table

A Cracker box, cards and a banana peel ( mine)
A Chapter book with a red plastic ruler for a bookmark
a snapped elastic
a pen with no-more-ink.

multi colored magnets shaped like alien DNA.
plates enshrining after school snack crumbs
Velvet covered pencils and mini lunch containers.

mugs sticky with loved hot chocolate drops.
boots with pink fur trim ( hey! feet off the table!)
a bright blue brush with black curly hairs.

a pencil case full of tiny plastic treasures
agenda's full of teachers' wishes
yo - yo's beside silver candle sticks.

All on my table, all part of my day,
all left by pages from my hearts book.
Chicken pie in the oven and a cousin
for a dinner guest.

We are blessed.
