Tucking Summer into Bed

Tonight I tucked two happy, dirty little boys into bed. Should they have had baths before bed? Probably. Do I care? Nope.

Because tonight I tucked summer into bed. I tucked in the smell of dirt, sunshine (yes, it has a smell), water, sand, sunscreen, and chocolate ice cream. If laughter has a smell, then I smelled that too. That, my friends, is what little boys should smell like after a day at the cottage. It is the smell of happiness. It is the smell of memories being made. It is the smell of childhood.

Good to go, Daddy!
