well, i’ve written the same 44 names several times by now.
smiling often, wondering who they are…
or, knowing exactly who they are.
as i got the files ready, i noticed one label peeling back.
looking under i saw a name from several years ago.
through that name i could see another name.
from our first year of preschool.
with a previous preschooler coming back as a teacher helper,
i can’t help but dive into the swirl of memories.
look at this:
way back in 1999 we were doing X marks the spot!
we wore pirate head coverings.
we found a treasure box.
i had my own baby on my hip.
she’s 13 now.
