{this moment}

From SouleMama: {this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. 






I'm breaking the rules today to explain that the face Chase is making is not one of pain or discomfort. The moment he tried on the sleeve for his sweater, he thought of it as a chain mail sleeve and the DPNs as added armor. This is his fierce warrior face.

  2. Your son has quite the imagination. I bet you could find a pattern for chain mail and sacrafice some DPNs (shudder)

  3. If this is the initial impression he got of his sweater... you nailed it mom. I'm sure it'll be a favorite!

    Blessings, Debbie

    Thanks, Renee! He's having quite a bit of fun today when I ask him to try on the sleeves.

    Great idea! I started googling and found a few ideas -- I told him I would add it to the project list and now he's down in the basement looking for his sword and shield. I don't know about sacrificing any DPNs though -- they're too precious! But, that's what dowels and pencil sharpeners are for!

    Yep -- I think when it is all done, he is going to be one very happy kiddo.
