All that is boy

Splatter paint rock star

Lightning McQueen racecar

Tying up a Superman cape

Flying fast to outer space

Blasting off to the moon

Right here in the living room

Digging big holes in the sandbox

Knocking over towers of blocks

Dinosaurs and sharks

Running, jumping through the park

So many bruises, cuts, and scrapes

And lots and lots of Batman Band-Aids

Trucks and trains and tanks and cars

Trapping bugs and slugs in jars

Roaring, snarling, gnashing, growling

Mooing, quacking, laughing, howling

Action figures and remote control trains

Looking for dump trucks and spotting planes

Adventures, journeys, and quests without fear

Unconditional love kicked up to 5th gear

The dirt, the snuggles, the hugs, and the noise

The wonderful privilege of raising a boy



About Callie

I'm a mom and a counselor. I want people to be able to talk about everything, show the real side of parenting, admit their faults, and celebrate their successes.
