Today was the day we were going to meet. Papa and I would have been so excited to hold you and welcome you to the family. We wanted to share so many things with you–a house full of critters, a curiosity about the world, abundant bikes and music, you name it. We’d have learned so much from seeing the world through your eyes.
I can’t tell you how much I miss you. We certainly didn’t have enough time together. Your visits are much too short. It’d be great if you wanted to give us another shot. I want to cry out and beg you to come back, but if you are anything like mom and dad, you are stubborn enough to do it on your own schedule. We’ll wait.
We just started a CSA last week. When you are able to stay with us longer, we’ll be able to feed you lots of good stuff, teach you about growing food and explore the farm. Last night I made roasted potatoes. They gave us a combo of golden-brown potatoes and purple potatoes. Purple potatoes! As I sliced them open and saw that they were even purple inside, I smiled and thought of you. Someday we’ll have fun making purple potatoes.
A song just came to mind….Lullaby by Dan Wilson. This is the only recording of it I know…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0nHV0qZKgM. Someday I’ll take you to the Cedar and you can giggle and dance and have a big cookie.
Love you forever.
