The Wind Cries Mary

The Chaos family hiked to the park this weekend to fly kites. It was LMD's first time flying the kite by herself, and she was thrilled as she watched her Barbie kite dip and twirl in the sky. As it inevitably happens, the wind began to lose it's strength about a half hour after we started.

Me to LMD: "LMD, we'll have to go. You can't fly your kite anymore. The wind is dying down."

"No, Mommy, it just has a boo-boo."

Unable to argue with that logic, I watched her struggle to fly that kite for another 20 minutes. I savored every second of it, knowing her childhood will be as fleeting as that wind.

Well, as you know, I've had a similar epiphany recently. Hold onto those moments. They go by way too fast.
