I'll miss the chatter and the entertainment. But not near as much as I'll miss those little arms that crept around my neck every morning when he came to my bedside to announce that he was awake. Life is good when every new day deserves it's own announcement!
In the past I've called the shots about where we would go for a walk. Now that he's five he's the font of all knowledge and leads me where he wants to go. I want to go up the creek, he wants to go down. You can guess which way we went.
Just because he's standing still, don't for one minute presume he's quiet.
He's so like his mother - when it's time for a road-trip he's first to the car.
While he was here we had another special visitor. A lone black swan dropped in to spend a couple of days on the dam. I was hoping a mate might join him or her but it wasn't to be. At least I know the special little human visitor will be back one day.
I was surprised that it let us get as close as it did. Aiden loved that it made footprints!
