It's a Wonderful Life

It started with kidlets burying each other in tissue paper that keeps drifting out of the ornament box into the living room. Ended with a perfectly place soccer kick to the nose, blood dripping, tissue everywhere, crying, hugs and "It's okay, Jack, did you you pick your nose too much?" Love Janie.

It started with a head massage and new hairdo. Ended with, "Oh, that's the dog brush."

It started with letting them help decorate the bottom half of the tree. Ended in glass all over. Twice. And one half-sized, supposedly not fragile icicle that we hung anyway.

It started with friendly sibling banter. Ended in laundry scattered all over, two smiling urchins decked to the nines in too of big boxers, a head bonk, more hugs, and ... no blood!

Yes, it's a wonderful life!!

I call these keep forever moments--they are the things you look back on that perfectly capture the essence of ages 2 and 4.
