Mind Your Head Monday


My little one whose tongue is dumb,
Whose fingers cannot hold to things,
Who is so mercilessly young,
He leaps upon the instant things,

I hold him not. Indeed, who could?
He runs into the burning wood.
Follow, follow if you can!
He will come out grown to a man

And not remember whom he kissed,
Who caught him by the slender wrist
And bound him by a tender yoke
Which, understanding not, he broke.

~ Tennessee Williams

And Daddy didn't hold him by the wrist.
So he tumbled onto the concrete and rolled into the bushes.
Just because he could hear Mummy coming up the street.
All excited and trying to run, stumbling closer and wanting to give me a hug.



  1. OUCH... lots of cuddles needed I bet :( Looks like he's a brave little man xoxo

  2. Awwwww that was so cute that he wanted to get to his mama!! He is TOO adorable Athena!
