OOOH I am so jealous! We are huge White Sox fans. I truly hope she enjoys this moment. For my children, there is no better feeling that walking up to the seats for the first time and viewing the field.

Good luck!

Wow, you've got a new blog design - what a beautiful picture! And your girls seem to have grown up so much, even just shown in a far away profile-shot as it is - all tall and slim.
Best wishes always,
Hannah

Falling Down, November 2004

  • Balloon in hand, my 4-year-old
    twirled across the kitchen floor,
    singing nonsense words
    in her own key.
    "It's my gift!" she declared
    to the world at large, which
    was really only me,
    sitting at the table. Enough
    twirling, and she lost
    her balance, tumbling
    to the floor in a theatrical
    slapstick of elbows and knees.

    She lay on her back
    for a few seconds,
    staring
    at the textured ceiling
    with the mysterious
    spaghetti sauce stain.
    Suddenly she
    began
    flapping her arms and legs
    there on the floor, as if to swish
    the imaginary snow
    into a snow angel.

    "Falling down is also a gift!" says she.
