Hello world! Welcome to my blog.
Normally, the first blog entry tends to be an introduction to the author. Here I would write all about my education, career, family, likes, dislikes, pets, etc. in an attempt to make you find me an interesting enough person to keep reading. I hate to disappoint you, but that is not how I intend to start my blog. I've tried that before and never got past the first one or two entries. Instead, I'm going to tell you about what my son and I did tonight.
Tonight my two-year-old and I sat at the dining room table and dyed Easter Eggs. Although I was hesitant about undertaking such an activity with him (I had images in my mind of the beige rug looking tie-dyed by the end of the evening, as well as of cherry-colored handprints on clothing and walls), it turned out to be a lot better than I ever could have imagined.
There is nothing more entertaining than watching a child play with colors. Despite all the work that I knew was waiting for me tonight, I was able to forget everything and experience pure joy just watching my son. I loved hearing his squeals of excitement as his eggs turned blue, pink, yellow and green. It made me wish for a moment that I could be a little kid again.
