|Day 8 of 31 at TWT!|
"Woo!" She squeals and wiggles as I pull her out of the seat, her huge eyes gazing at the kids running on the playground.
"Do you remember the swings? You love to swing!" I ease her squirming legs into the holes in the baby swing, set her bottom in the right place, and help her grab the front of the seat. Very gently, I pull the swing back and let it go, pushing slightly harder each time. At first, she grabs the seat tightly and presses her lips in a tight line, but soon she relaxes, leans forward, and starts "talking".
|Ooh, yeah, I remember! This is fun!|
"Ba-ba-ba-ba. Bwooooo! Bvvvvvvvt." She starts waving at the other people on the playground, giggles, and beams at me with her signature smile. My little ray of sunshine.
|Hi, playground friends!|
Thoughts of testing, tiredness, and to-dos vanish, and I'm just here: under the blue sky, basking in the sweetness of springtime, overflowing with joy.
