ode to the boots



he would wake up
& say
boots!

& when getting ready to go someplace
anyplace
time to get shoes on
boots!

even when it was 90 degrees out
sticky & yucky
the chant was the same
boots!

& one day i found him
napping away
couldn't do it
without
boots

no matter what he was wearing
jammies
shorts
t shirt & diaper
no outfit was complete without
boots

now he's on to the next
next car
next truck
next bucket
next bat
next ball
next mr. potato head

but i didn't want to forget
or leave them
forgotten
in memories

for the love of boots

so what do you not want to forget?

Don't want to forget a little boy saying "teent tyou" after getting a piece of chocolate.

My sweet oli saying "bess you momma" after I sneezed today. Or my beautiful Henry opening his mouth wider and wider in pursuit of more kisses from momma.

Or Oliver singing "happy today uh oli!" on his birthday last Sunday.

Precious, just precious.

I don't want to forget how fip-fops are the best shoes and that we can wear them just everywhere we can go. Hmm... And I don't want to forget how when Boy #1 wants to go somewhere he'll say "Boy #2 likes to go there too". (; they just make my heart smile until it hurts!
