these two boys are full of wonder. their hair and eyes are completely different shades and their personalities could not be more diverse but their need for discovery is one and the same.
they have the hearts and minds of adventures. their eyes are filled with brilliant flecks of curiosity that sparkle all through the day. it is a beautiful sight to see.
by night they dream of jungles and lands filled with creatures of all shapes and sizes. sometimes their tiny toes and fingers twitch and i smile because that tells me that this must be a good one.
by night they are warriors, sailors and doctors. they teach, save and explore. they can be anything or anyone.
by night they are my little angels. clean faced and peaceful with warm cheeks and soft hearts. they refuse no kisses and they stay put as i tell them how wonderful they are. i tell them how i love them and how they have each changed me. i tell them how i'm the luckiest mommy in the whole world because they are mine.
by night i pray for them and dream of the men that they will become. these are men that we are raising, not just boys. they are husbands and fathers.
by night i am sometimes overwhelmed at the great responsibility that i have been gifted.
but by day they are still my boys. they are gage and garrett. three and one. and they just want to play.
