It is time to share a Slice of Life – the weekly writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
Twenty-seven years ago today, my youngest son was born.
(Sister and brother, just days old)
Time has certainly sped by – he has grown taller than me, has a career he loves and has moved recently farther north to take a job with more responsibilities. I am very proud of him.
He arrived yesterday for a couple of days. We admired his new car and then got down to the serious business of playing games – Rack-O and the dice game 5s and 1s. Growing up we always played games – from Creazy Eight Countdown to Wide World to Scattegories. Whenever we get together now, we always find time for a game or two.
My husband and I took him out to dinner for his birthday supper – normally we have a big get-together, but we couldn’t arrange it this time. Instead, his celebration was spread over a couple of days. After supper, we watched “Kingsman”.
Today. My son and I met up with my daughter/ his sister for his birthday lunch. What a treat to be with my children (two of them at least) and be able to chat and laugh and remember. As a bonus, Lunch was a healthy vegan meal and very filling.
As our children get older, we may see them less, but getting together is always special
Wow…I love how time changes things and you see your child taller than you and in a career he loves, but how you still find ways to do the things of childhood with games and celebrations. Each moment is special. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Maya. lovely put! I don’t know if the games more to me or him!
