Follow me, everyone!
You’ve got to see this!!
Look over there!!
They’re building a bridge!!
Do you know what that means?!?
That means Mommy won’t need to pop my stroller into 4-wheel drive to go to our park anymore!
Isn’t that great?
“Uh….. Did you hear that Mommy?!?”
“Yes, son,” Mommy replied calmly.
“What is it?!?” I asked her.
“It’s called a nail gun,” Mommy explained.
I stared in awe.
Then with deep reverence I repeated it outloud.
It echoed on the air and reverberated through me.
“Nona!!!!” I suddenly cried out, “Noooonaaaaa!!!!”
Mommy looked at me with a single eyebrow raised and a smile tugging at the sides of her lips.
“Yes, son,” she said solemnly, “Nail gun.”
Then she turned back to the gathering sunset.
But I only had eyes for my precious ‘nona’.
Even when Mommy kept calling my name and trying to get me to look at her…..
My faithful eyes never departed from the ‘nona’.
So finally, she went back to her sunset.
And we were both in heaven.
