Some years ago, a friend stopped by for an unannounced visit.
With some horror, I gave her directions to our upstairs bathroom, not knowing what condition she’d find it in. After all, with three small boys, you never know if you’ll see a sink full of dried toothpaste, an unflushed toilet or worse. (Much, much worse.)
She came out of the bathroom saying, “Oh, I remember when we had Power Rangers in the bathtub!” Her boy was ten years older than my oldest boys. Those days were long gone for her.
I think of that sometimes, especially when my daughter uses the big master bathroom tub and leaves her little family of animals perched on the edge.
These days don’t last forever.
One thought on “Cat’s in the cradle”
I gave a big box of those animals away a few years ago, and wish I hadn’t. Days of innocence and wonder.
