Little Boy Blue


My youngest is only three days a week in daycare.  Those are the days I work.  
That leaves two mornings a week with my older three kids in school, and my youngest and me spending some hours together, just the two of us. 
Last Tuesday we brought lunch (and some paper bags in case we'd find blueberries) and went up to the forest area above town, where we walked, picked blueberries and mushrooms, played and had lunch before it was nap time.
Precious time with my baby, who is growing up so fast.  We build memories together, small, maybe insignificant, but still enormous and really important to us...

Min yngste er bare tre dager i uka i barnehagen.  Det er de dagene jeg jobber.
Det gir oss to formiddager i uka hvor mine tre eldste er på skolen, og Minstemann og jeg har noen timer sammen, bare oss to.
Forrige tirsdag tok vi med oss mat (og noen papirposer i tilfelle vi skulle finne blåbær) og dro opp i skogen ved Øverby, hvor vi gikk, plukket blåbær, sopp, lekte og spiste lunch før det ble sovetid.
Gullkantet tid med babyen min, som blir så fort stor.  Vi bygger minner sammen, små, kanskje uviktige, men likevel enorme - og virkelig viktige for oss...


"Mommy, look, an anthill!"
"Se, Mamma, en maurtue!"



"No, I don't want to smile right now!" (I'm 2 1/2 after all...)
"Nei, jeg vil ikke smile akkurat nå!" (Jeg er tross alt 2 1/2 år...)


"I'm not smiling, not smiling..."
"Jeg smiler ikke, smiler ikke..."



"Oh, well, if you insist!"
(And, if there are any doubts, we did really find some blueberries!..)
"Javel, da, hvis du absolutt vil!"
(Og hvis noen er i tvil, så fant vi altså noen blåbær!..)

  1. That is adorable!!! I have a 2 1/2 year old boy, too. I love the time that we have together while his big brother is in kindergarten. I love blueberry picking, too. Such sweet memories!
