The time that I am able to spend with my little Sammy in the mornings while Elijah is at school is so precious. It's always the most entertaining part of my day, as I answer question after question followed by constant commentary followed by bossy orders telling me exactly where I can sit and what I cannot touch or breathe on. I do like the orders commanding me to "Come suggle wif me, Mama!" Then Elijah comes home and it's more difficult to get that quality time with either one of them. Just a few more days of this and we will officially be in summer mode!
Summer can be defined by so many things: hot weather, watermelon, popsicles, grilling, corn on the cob, swimming pools, fireworks, skydiving, traveling, freedom, splash parks, sunscreen, sprinklers, ice cream trucks, swim suits, beach towels, lemonade and so many other things. Oh, and don't forget slimming down! I have a difficult time eating heavy, calorie-laden foods in the summer-time (ha! wait till you see what next week's post is!) and I adore salads and other light foods when it is steamy out (still waiting for this).
