Wordless Wednesday… #preciousmoments #childhoodinnocence

In the moments you want to prove to your husband that you can start the grill and made a sweet bug-free zone… and  your two year old walks into the shot and begins an off-key rendition of Happy Birthday to da tree and you’re helpless. You’ve already pressed your screen and the moment is captured there to remember, but what’s really ingrained in the brain is the way her voice squeaks and the words todatree running together as she stares up at your tiki torch with this wonder and awe you’d forgotten ever existed. The moment you wanted to celebrate your awesome success, and your first born chooses to sing to the tree that hangs over from the neighbor’s property and drops leaves all over the yard and you just listen and stare and even, truly, join in singing to the (damn) tree.

Those are our most precious moments of childhood innocence- the reason we want to do this again and again.

Perhaps this Wednesday isn’t totally wordless, but it certainly is heartwarming.
