my attempt at blending the arts I cherish
tonight was a good night. muff, the eight year old pictured above, and i decided to have a “pocahontas night” and we were incredibly successful if you ask me.
first, we carefully constructed our “realistic” tepee with sheets, clothespins, comforters, christmas lights, and magic of course. he kept saying “let’s make it ‘realistic,’ you know? that brown blanket kinda looks like a bear skin, right?” or “oh, let’s cover up the sesame street blanket; it’s not realistic.” what a kid. then, i hung the christmas lights, which obviously took away from that, but let’s be real–they’re awesome. next, he constructed a fake fire of lincoln logs and paper flames. dinner was quickly prepared, face paint applied, and disney’s pocahontas grabbed.
i sang all the songs and he hummed along. lemon desserts found their way into our content tummies. and now he’s curled up under those happy, plastic stars.
as he’s said before “Ahnna, we have bad times and good times, but i still love you,” and tonight was a good time we’ll always remember, little one. i love you, muffin.
what if poems could be symphonies, and people their orchestra?
