The energy is endless, but the yard is big.
I find myself shoving Addie and I out the door in the late afternoon.
I need her to swing, dig, run and slide. I need it so that just enough energy is used that dinner isn't a battle ground, that bath time isn't an ordeal, and that bedtime is peaceful, punctuated with kisses and hugs.
Ahhhh, summer afternoons, my salvation.
Summer afternoons and of course wine, sweet wine.
