That One-Minute Break

Yesterday, I had one full minute free.  So I mindlessly and aimlessly unlocked the door and stepped outside, but not before Gabby sensed something afoot and rushed to put on her rain boots.  It wasn’t raining but she loves this shiny polka dotted pair I bought her for less than a dollar in the grocery store.

“Mama! Mama!” she breathlessly shouts at me, “Let’s play in muddy puddles!” She was mimicking Peppa Pig, one of her favorite cartoon characters.

For one full minute, we walked outside.  Then I just stood there watching her.  She went crazy.  She was ecstatic.

In silence I pointed at the sky and she kept chuckling at some tiny birds that flew over the horizon in a V formation.

I contemplated on how amazing my life is, now that I have my daughter in it.  I even forgot to take pictures for posterity!

Well, we should do this more often.

“Tomorrow!” she suggests and I nod in agreement.

Did something magical happen to you yesterday?
