Strangely, there was not much on the docket today. I had the presence of mind to be present. We played on the floor and had a tickle fit on the bed (oh, the symphony of those giggles!) , walked to the co-op for some pastry, talked to a few friends on the phone. I know so well how quickly these days flee, and I want to gather the essence of them into my very pores and not let them go.
