When You're Not Quite Three.....

 When you're not quite three.....

.....and you have a brand new baby sister
whom you adore..... don't understand why you are not allowed
to squeeze he living daylights out of her, or.....

.....or shove one of those ear exam thingies
into her ears!

When you're not quite three only
Daddy can push you high enough
to nearly touch the sky.

 When you're not quite three
it seems like a good idea to pile all your
toys on top of you.....
or gather the family outside on the porch
to have a party
as thunder and lightning
scared the living daylights out of your Grandma!

When you're not quite three
it is only natural to walk into Georgian Bay
to make sure 
throwing stones is even more fun.

When you're not quite three
you are invincible
and think nothing of working out how to
climb a slide made for much bigger people and.....

 .....swoosh down that slide, and
do it over and over again.

When you're not quite three
you join a soccer team.
Even younger than when your Daddy joined
way back in the day.

And you learn to listen to your coach
especially when he tells everyone to sit on their ball.

When you're not quite three
sliding down onto your Mommy seems like a good idea


life is just grand.

  2. Wonderful pictures ... and I'm sure it was hard as can be to pick out the ones you did from the many more that were equally delightful. Happy days!!

    1. P.S. I neglected to say how much your narrative enhanced the meaning of each picture. Thank you for that.
