Shakespeare for three somethings

We are coming home from a walk and there is a neighbor walking his black lab in front of us. As we get closer he notices us coming up and pulls his dog off the sidewalk so we can pass. The dog pants and lounges toward us as we pass. The neighbor tells his dog to stop. We continue to walk by and the dog continues to do his hyper dog thing, neighbor continues to tell him stop. Once we are past and on our way, Sadie asks why the man was telling his dog to stop and why was she not able to pet the dog. I tell her that the dog was pulling on the leash and he was not supposed to and that this dog probably was not used to kids and might jump up and knock her down. Sadie's response, holding her head and being extra dramatic" OH, No! That would be terrible!! I would not like that!" I laugh, she asks why. We continue on our walk home.

Something I will soon forget even though I tell myself not to.


Tonight we went to Mike's ice cream after dinner. After finishing our cones, we walked for a bit down a little back path. Emma held Sadie's hand and they both squealed with glee at the fun they were having. Who could imagine holding hands and walking could be so exhilarating? We stopped to watch birds and planes and to point at the moon. Emma and Sadie decided it would be fun to chase after me and try to squeeze through my legs while I was walking. I would stop and let them both thru and start all over again. Happy little girls giddy at the world around.
