Last weekend I took Sloane and her best friend, Lauren, to see Pinocchio. The girls and I were walking back to the car afterward when I spotted the most adorable little girl. She was bouncing along holding her momma's hand. Her coat was red and full over a swishy little dress. Her chubby legs were covered in thick tights and she had on patent leather Mary Jane's. She was full of so much delight that even her tiny pigtails bounced with her. It was late, late and dark, dark, but I knew I had to try and capture this adorable moment.
I can still hear the girls chattering excitedly about their favorite parts in the play as I kept snapping pictures in the low light. I remember thinking wistfully of the time when the girls beside me were as small and bouncy as the girl in front of me. I remember being thankful that my girls might be older, but they were still as bouncy as ever.
What's making you feel bouncy on this fine Saturday morning?
