Ketchup with Us # 13

Mel and Michele are hosting a bi-weekly link-up called "Ketchup With Us". This assignment is #13 and it is to talk about whose shoes you would like to walk in for a day in 57 words or less.
I got nothing. Nada. But GOOD NEWS! Our daughter Jenn said she would humor me and play this time. Yippeee! This is what she wrote....

Since becoming a stay-at-home mom, my life has revolved around my son, so I have thought a lot about what it would be like to be a toddler again (but only for a day)...

Only fourteen months into his life,
eyes wide with wonder, innocent laughter abounds.
It takes so little to amuse and impress him.
Not yet afraid, not yet jaded.
Seeing the world for the first time - 
everything is new and interesting.
Ahh to go back to the beginning and do it all again.
What would I do differently?

*Thanks to Dad for helping me post this without my own blog, and thanks to Mel and Michele for letting me play too! 


  1. Writing definitely runs in the family! What a great choice. I would love to go back to be a toddler for a day!

  2. Thanks Bo. She says she's really busy. You think?

  3. "Not yet afraid, not yet jaded."

    My favorite line. Like that magical window when kids are old enough to get Santa but not so old that they stop ... well, you know where I'm going with it.

    Great response, Jenn. I'll talk to Wy when he submits one of his own. :)

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. Hey Jenn, please tell
      Michele it was like a guest post so she'll talk to me again.

  4. Go 'Nifer! You nailed this one, Baby Sis! Love the One Stars from Auntie Q that match het own!
    Now you need to make your own blog!
    Thanks for helping her, Dad!

    Those shoes are adorable. He is getting so big and of course, more handsome by the minute. "It takes so little to amuse and impress him." Love that. So true.

  8. So true. Everything is fresh and new. You captured it perfectly!
