After playing baseball in the backyard with Big D, I came up with a list of things I would like to do with the boys “While They’re Still Young.” I am list person and always have been. I write lists for groceries, I write lists for packing before a trip, and of course J and I even wrote a list in order to pick Baby D’s name. (Finding a name when you are a teacher is like pulling teeth. It is so hard not to associate a name with a face.)
Below is my list:
-Take the boys to a Major League Baseball game.
-Make snow angels with the boys.
-Ride the Durango train when it is Winter. (Polar Express here we come.)
-Ride the RailRunner to Albuquerque with both boys.
-Ride in a hot air balloon with the boys.
-Go on the Tram with the boys.
-Play a game of freeze tag.
-Teach the boys how to jump off of a swing.
-Watch both boys give back to their community.
-Pray the rosary with both boys at least once a week.
-Read aloud all of the Harry Potter books.
Of course this is just the beginning of the list. Some things on here can be done soon because Big D is getting big so fast. Others, may have to wait. I want to keep track of this list on this blog. More importantly, I want to remember that both boys are only little once and I want to make memories for me. I have discovered that parents are correct when they state, sometimes you don’t do things for the kids, you do it for you.
