Backyard Puppet Show
My youngest son loves puppets. I mean...LOVES...puppets. Marionettes, hand puppets, finger puppets, whatever...he loves them and loves putting on puppet shows for us. He has ever since he was little bitty. He went to a puppet/marionette show at our local Art Center one year around Christmas time when he was just a tiny baby, and he has been hooked ever since.
During last summer, all he wanted to do was go out to our building behind our house, open up the window on the glass door, and entertain us with puppet shows. I spent many hours sitting on our back patio, watching him do these shows....over.and.over.and.over. I'm glad I remembered to grab the camera and capture these pictures and this stage in his life. He's not nearly as obsessed with puppets as he used to be (thank God), but today after he saw this page that I made, he suddenly remembered doing this and ran outside to do it again. LOL So funny.
These moments are ever so fleeting. While they may drive me crazy right now, I know one day I will look back and miss them. So for now, I will encourage him to do what he loves doing...and hope that he always sees life as fun and entertaining like he does now. :)
